  TheAlchemist: Indeed, although it's purpose is very simple and logical.

  TheAlchemist: Does anyone have a "deflection sacrifice" game collection? This game would fit in perfectly.
Jan-16-10  Rama: With 27. Bb3 ..., it looks like Arthur has finally fought him off, but then comes 27. ... Nxd4! leading to the surprise ending. Toyla's tough.
Mar-02-11  SvetlanaBabe: What a great game by Karpov. Overwhelming one of the toughest GM's. Total control all the way! Maladets Tolya!
Jun-14-15  SpiritedReposte: Karpov deftly controls the ranks while blockading and destroying whites isolated queen pawn. Easy peazy for him.
