Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-14  Karpova: 22...Nxc5 may not have been best, perhaps 22...Ne8 (23.Rf2 Qxf2+ 24.Kxf2 Nxd6 may be about equal). 21...Qxa2 was possibly already too adventurous and Black may have tried 21...Qc4 or 21...Qe8 instead.

<27.Rf1> suggested by the annotator was better than 27.Rxh8. After the text move, Black's position is completely winning.

With 29...Nc3+ Black loses his advantage, the annotator presumes that Blak was in terrible time trouble. Winning was <29...Qb2+>.

It seems that 31.Qg3 may have been a mistake and covering d1 with 31.Qf3 was necessary. But Black misses his chance with 32...Qd4+, instead 32...Nf6+ 33.Kxe5 Qd5+ 34.Kf4 Qe4+ 35.Kg5 Qg6+ 36.Kf4.

33...g6+ was not annotated but may have been the losing mistake, allowing the White ♔ to escape. Better was 33...Ne3+.
