  Chessical: I am really surprised that Karpov played <4.Qd5>. I would have thought that <4. a3> was more in his style:

Opening Explorer

The <4.Qd5> variation can often lead to sharp squalls but which soon blow out into equality. For instance:

<8. Bg5!?> Qxg5 9. Qxa8 Qxe5 10. Rd1 O-O 11. Nf3 Qxb2 12. Qxb8 Bb7

13. Qxc7 Bxf3 14. gxf3 Qc3+ 15. Rd2
Qa1+ 16. Rd1 Qc3+ with a perpetual check.
