Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-02  skakmiv: This is a typical Karpov opening... Can't black punish white, for his "passive" play?
Nov-07-02  AgentRgent: Passive? This is brilliant positional chess...
Dec-21-02  skakmiv: Why 8.dxc5? He could have tried 8.e3?
Dec-21-02  mdorothy: I think e3 is playable, and I think it is played fairly often in simiar positions, but maybe he just thought to himself, 'How about I make today an interesting day and give myself a challenge?'
Dec-22-02  judokausa1: My guess is that Karpov wanted an "easy" game and headed for the ending where black has weak pawns on the queenside. He has all the chances and risks nothing by exchanging queens. A wonderful played ending.
Dec-26-04  azaris: Karpov posts his king aggressively on c2 and lets his opponent self-destruct trying to generate something. The end result is a massive weak pawn formation and White's unstoppable march to victory.
