Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-09-04  Lawrence: Karpov was going to win anyway but with 40...Rd5?? (40...Rxe1+) his task was greatly simplified. Junior also says that 43.Rh6 would have been far superior to Tolya's 43.Re8+.
Apr-10-04  pikoro: There is nothing wrong with Tolya's move, it also brings inevitable mate after a succession of checks. Karpov just wanted a succession of checks: 43...Nxe8 44.Qxe8+ ...Rxe8 45.Qg6+...Kh8 46.Qxe8+...Kg7 47.Qg6+...Kh8 48.Qh6+...Kg8 49.Rf8++
Apr-10-04  Lawrence: <pikoro>, what Karpov suggests in his book is 43...♘xe8 44.dxe8♕+ ♖xe8 45.♕g6+ so thanks for the completion. Alternatively he says 43...♖xe8 44.dxe8♕+ ♘xe8 45.♕g6+ ♘g7 46.♕f7+.
Apr-10-04  Benjamin Lau: I don't play the Bogo Indian, but 13...c5 seems bad to me. If you're going to lock up the center, you should have an area of counterplay first on a wing and Nikolic had no clear way of breaking out. He tried the queenside but Karpov put an end to that pretty quickly with a4. And Karpov broke through the kingside first with f4. Does Karpov mention where Nikolic first began to go wrong or where Nikolic planned to obtain counterplay?
Apr-11-04  Lawrence: <Ben>, Karpov puts a question mark after Black's move 34...Re5? and says "Blacks continue under the impression that their doubled Rooks are strong. 34...Rd7 would have been better, stopping the advance of the pawn." 36...h5 gets a ?! with the comment "Allowing Whites to create a little artistic study" but Junior would simply remove the exclamation mark and suggests 36...Qf5. Tolya doesn't mention it but Junior 8 says that 40...Rd5 (eval +9.51) was a terrible blunder whereas 40...Rxe1 receives an eval of +1.61.

On the question of counterplay, after 28...f5 "Blacks are prepared to exchange the e and f pawns, then take their Knight to f5 and thus obtain a position of dynamic equilibrium. Hence I was obliged to play with extreme care, but also decisively." (Translated from the Spanish edition.)

Apr-11-04  Benjamin Lau: It's interesting to see where Karpov and the machines differ in their assessments, thanks Lawrence.
