  Black Vampire: According to the score, in this game Bareev could be checkmated in the seventy-eighth move (again by Karpov!, as it happened three years later in Linares). Does some kibitzer know if the score is correct?

  suenteus po 147: <Black Vampire> The score is incorrect. It should play out as follows: 77...Rg4+ 78.Kd5 Kxa5 79.Kc6 Rg6+ and then plays out as normal in the current score.

  dernier loup de T: It seems Karpov could win this endgame after 75. Rf7+; which is not really amazing, with a plus of TWO pawns; poor Karpov, after a splendid reign over the chess kingdom from 1974 to 1985, he had no more the same degree of energy and accurateness after 1990; what a pity...

  OhioChessFan: No, it's a textbook and table base draw after 75. Rf7+

  dernier loup de T: I have to confess you're right, OhioChessFan: fan of Karpov, I'm too greedy for improving his scores!! LOL. Sorry!
