  GrahamClayton: Photo taken shortly after the game - is that a movie camera mounted on the tripod next to the board?

Jun-08-18  Retireborn: <Graham> Shortly before, surely? The camera is probably for a TV news station.
Sep-04-20  SChesshevsky: This interesting game seems to show Karpov can go for enterprising, unbalanced, unclear lines when in the mood.

His piece sac certainly appears to have compensation. But is it enough?
