Sep-23-05  halcyonteam: That is what i call:brute force
Oct-12-05  babakova: Ofcourse Karpov won this game nicely, but he had ALOT of help from his opponent who didnt try anything, just shuffled around wihout a plan... Not really an impressive game since you know black will cave in eventually.

  Jonathan Sarfati: An impressive game by the young Karpov, showing why he was the logical successor to Fischer. Black probably didn't realize how strong 19. b4 would prove to be, caging in the ♘b7.
Jun-15-14  Conrad93: Isn't 5. Bxc6+ bxc6 6. d4 better?
It's the main reason why I never play the Steinitz variation.

  perfidious: That line is also not bad--not sure it is objectively better, but leads to a different type of game.
