Oct-16-16  Robyn Hode: What's the world coming to when Karpov can't beat a KID.
Oct-16-16  Robyn Hode: It does look like Timman has spent a lot of time playing computers.

  kbob: 31. Nc2 Yes, what a crude blunder by karpov, especially since the fork and pins were so obvious. Oh well, I'm 65 too :)

That would never happen; not between these two old rivals.

Then 31. Nc2 was probably Karpov's 'giveawayoftheday' ;)

Oct-26-16  Conrad93: 19. e4 Bd7 20. Bf1 and I don't get how White is worse.

Or am I missing something? This looks like the type of position Karpov in his prime would never lose.

Dec-03-16  LA MAN: Tin man is no kid he is a very worthy and challenging opponent. Even the best players have a bad day sometime.
Mar-24-20  naufallabs: 23 later Timman can beat Karpov before he did it in 1993
