Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-06-02  bishop: Karpov shows that he is not afraid of giving his opponent a protected passed pawn as long as he gets his trumps,mainly control of the b-file,and chances of attacking the d and a-pawns.When the d-pawn falls the game is decided. `
Jun-10-04  Dudley: Kavpov did not actually win the c4 pawn until later in the game but he won the c4 square, and was able to post a strong knight there. White gave up the bishop pair and had nothing to compete with Karpov's knight and control of the b file. This is a textbook example of how black should play against the classical Nimzo, probably pretty easy for Karpov.
