Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-20-05  pencuse: Karpov has lost this game because of zeitnot (time). But anyway, its position is helpless, for example: 36. f3 Rc2+ 37. Kf1 Qc4+ 38. Kg1 Qd4+ 38. Kh1 Qf2 ; 36. Rd1 Qxg4+ 37. Qxg4 Rxg4+ and 38. ... Rxg6. Ivanchuk was 21 years old and won Linares 1991, against the tournament players who were in top 50 those days.
Jul-20-05  PivotalAnorak: 36.Qd5
Oct-21-05  Brown: Only game between the two that Ivanchuk won at classical time controls, Karpov has won 3, with a few draws.

Mostly active and rapid games from Monaco between these two.

  Zhbugnoimt: 36.Qxd5 Qxg4+ 37.Kf1. Mate on f7 and d8, so black has to keep checking: 37...Qh3+ 38.Ke2 Qg4+ 39.Kd3 1-0
May-20-17  Howard: Talk about a lousy start for Karpov! He lost three of of his first five games in this event.
