Jan-18-12  gsustudent: Awesome game by Karpov, he's my favorite player. I'm surprised he missed move 30...Qc6/Qa6 or the beautiful move Qd3!
Jan-18-12  Shams: Yes, 30...Qd3 is a killer shot!
Jan-18-12  King Death: Here's a nice game where Karpov found the key move ...Qd3: S Tatai vs Karpov, 1977.
Jan-18-12  Shams: <KD> Showoff.
Jan-18-12  King Death: <Shams> LOL!
Jan-17-14  zugzwangliker: 4. ...a6 seems to work well for black in this line, discouraging white to attack with an early g4. I wonder if this idea was invented by Karpov.
Jan-17-14  RookFile: Karpov was pretty cold blooded about those weak dark squares near his king. One mistake and he's dead.
Jan-17-14  stanleys: <zugzwangliker:> Yes I think it's Karpov invention. Playing ...a6 is normally useful in this line, and as you said 5.g4 is not the best idea because of the simple 5...Bd7, followed by ...e6 - white has just weakened his pawn structure
