  TheAlchemist: A beautiful finish by Dementiev. Maybe it could be a puzzle someday.

  Benzol: Nice finish from Dementiev here to clean up Karpov.
Oct-29-10  sevenseaman: The last move by Dementiev does not usually occur to an average player. No wonder I find it impressive!
Apr-24-15  offramp: Karpov plays done odd moves around 20-30.
Apr-25-15  Retireborn: According to my database the second (and last!) time that Karpov played the Alekhine as Black (I don't know if he has played it in recent years though.)

Black should play 12...Nd7 or at least 13...a6; after 15.Rc1! his position is already pretty hopeless.

Jun-03-15  rollingrook5: 12... Nd7 drops the d5 pawn. However, your suggestion, 13... a6 looks like it is almost necessary.
Jun-03-15  rollingrook5: The way White plays this is one of the reasons the exd6 exchange line is played much more often these days.
Apr-16-18  WorstPlayerEver: Sometimes chess is simple: 21. Nd3 what were these guys thinking?

Apr-16-18  Count Wedgemore: <WorstPlayerEver> 21.Qd2 is just as good.
