Jul-28-08  micahtuhy: Here is what I do not get. At this point Kasparov is up 5-4. All Karpov can do is tie the match and Garry would retain, why play why (legallly speaking) play the game at all?

Can anyone shed light on this?

Jul-28-08  norami: Money. If Karpov won they would've split the prize money equally.

Explains why Karpov didn't play the usual d5 and/or c5 in the Queen's Indian Defence. A bit drawish.
