  jessicafischerqueen: Why is there no kibbutzing on this page?

This is a travesty.

I predict kibbutzing from various members of the <Dr. Max Euwe Center>...

Apr-28-08  pikket: If, instead of 22 Nf5, 22 Nf3, is Black playing 22...Nxh3+ ?
Dec-03-08  Woody Wood Pusher: If 22.Nf3,Bxh3 23.Nh2,Nxg2 24.Qh5,Nf4 25.Qf3,Rfd8 and white's KS is totally destroyed.

22.Ne2 might have been a better try than 22.Nf5

Great game.

  Honza Cervenka: 17.Ne2 would have been better. After this point it is difficult to suggest any significant improvement for white. Karpov dominated on the board and won the game with breathtaking ease.
Oct-05-20  fisayo123: Easy win for Karpov. All the best moves according to the engine. The precision in his play is incredible.
