Transcend the realm of life and death, and then you will be able to make your way calmly and safely through any crisis that confronts you."--Morehei Ueshiba, The Art of Peace

Game 5 of E. Mednis' How Karpov Wins, pp 26-29. "Karpov prepares for an expected opening variation, finds the means to strengthen White's position, and comes out of the opening with a clear advantage. His opponent's attempts at counterplay on the Queenside are turned away with what seems like effortless ease. When Savon ventures an unsound tactical point, Karpov refutes with a sound one. Opening, strategy, tactics--all mesh for a scintillating twenty-four move win.

Feb-14-04  Catfriend: I think that if black would just develop his main power, his attack on the Q-side would be more effective.
