  Tabanus: Keene in The Spectator, 16 March 1991:

"Immediately after the game, Jon Speelman told me: 'After the opening I had an objectively very dubious position, but with excellent practical fighting chances. Karpov decided to win a pawn but in doing so gave me reasonable compensation in the form of a strong initiative. And in time trouble he allowed me to transform this compensation into an overwhelming position. Despite the scrappy nature of the game, I was delighted since this is my first win against him whereas he had beaten me on a number of occasions."

  perfidious: While Speelman's handling of the queen and knight duo was impressive, where did his great opponent let the advantage slip through his fingers for good and all?
