May-09-04  Tigran Petrosian: Karpov plays his first kings indian defense. Collosal.
May-09-04  Benjamin Lau: I heard that Karpov obtained an almost winning position here but frittered it away in time problems. It was his first try with the defense. He needed a win in this blitz game or he would get the boot from the tournament, so he played the sharpest opening he could think of. Unfortunately, he still drew.
May-10-04  Everett: This is where an aging Karpov just isn't the same. Bravo that he tries a new opening, sad that he can't convert this ending.
Sep-16-04  Rowson: Don't Rag Karpov the man's a living legend. one can't be the best forever. time will wither us all.

May-28-05  Robyn Hode: Karpov doesn't play the KID. This is only his second. Nice to see him experiment in his old age.
May-28-05  VerySensitivePerson: Karpov hates all openings that include kingside fianchetto.
May-28-05  MrSifter: <VerySensitivePerson> Karpov regularly fianchettoed his kingside on the white side of d4 openings, the Catalan being a favorite weapon of his in the 90's.

May-28-05  VerySensitivePerson: <MrSifter> I was talking about Karpov's opening repertoire with Black. Off course he fianchettoed KB hundreds of times playing white side of QID.
Mar-25-06  Everett: <<VerySensitivePerson:> I was talking about Karpov's opening repertoire with Black.>
