Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-08  pikket: I guess, in final pos, Black goes ...Nc4, R to 7th, and advances a-pawn as far as necessary to tie White up in knots.

It's those knight moves I never see coming: 22 Nd7 allowing White Q to e7 - just so unintuitive!

  GrahamClayton: Excellent play by Karpov in targeting White's weak doubled c-pawns, especially the c4 pawn. The pressure put on the c4-pawn by 11..♖c8 is eventually rewarded by the capture of the pawn with 18...♗c4.
