  plang: The finesse, 16 Qa4 and 18 Qc2 (instead of 16 Qc2, was first plated by Kramnik against Kasparov at Las Palmas 1996. One of the ideas is to discourage ..e5 (18..e5 19 Qe4). Kasparov had to struggle to draw with 18..Rc8. Yusupov's 18..a5 was played to to make it difficult for Karpov to get b4 in but the queenside pawn weakness that was created was ultimately what Karpov took advantage of in the endgame. After 27 a4 the queenside pawns were frozen while Karpov's kingside majority was still fluid. After either 37..fg 38 hg or 37..g6 38 Qe5 Karpov would have had a significant positional advantage but Yusupov's 37..Kc6? led to the loss of a pawn.
