Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-06-08  WickedPawn: Kasparov must have felt very satisfied with this draw (game 20) after losing the previous three games in a row to Karpov (games 17, 18 and 19) for the 1986 World Championship.

So that White can't play Ra4 and put a bunch of pressure on the pawn. White'll further attack it with e3 followed by Bf4 and the black queen is pretty much stuck on the 5th rank. The pawn is easier to defend on b4.
