Dec-10-03  Spitecheck: Karpov may have got the idea from the simul (games against Rottmann and Schmidhauser) to try the line against more esteemed company, here Yusupov's active antidote seemed to take all the fun out of it. Karpov repeated the variation once more, and this woman player following Yusupov's lead was also able to draw.
