Kibitzer's Corner
May-25-06  sitzkrieg: I don't understand why white doesn\t play 19. Nb5.
Dec-01-06  Brown: After 19..Qxb5, what's your idea?
Dec-14-06  Brown: Whoops! Forget that last post ;-)

Perhaps 19...Qxd2 20.Rxd2 Nf5 seems to solve black's problems. After 21.Nc7+ Ke7 22.Nxa8 Rxa8, black has strong chances of holding because of his good knights protecting the past pawn.

Also, Karpov may have prepared either 19...Kf8 or 19...Qd8
