Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-08  CharlesSullivan: Could Karpov have overlooked 34.Nxf7, winning? Perhaps this game score is wrong.
Aug-17-08  Woody Wood Pusher: After 34.Nxf7, Qxd4 35. Nxd8, Qxd8 36. Qb2+, Kh6 it seems white has to move the bishop and watch out for any ...Be4 from black but 37. Bg8!, Qxg8 38. Qd2+, Kh6 39. Re7 + white has a won game.

Unless you see 37. Bg8! like the computer (Master Chess 32 bit 20MHz) then the line is less thematically clear because it does not give the two passed pawns g and h, which Karpov was aiming to win with most of the game and did!

Aug-18-08  CharlesSullivan: <Woody Wood Pusher> Interesting idea! By the way, after 34.Nxf7 Qxd4 35.Nxd8 Qxd8 Zappa finds a very nice mate-in-14 beginning 36.Qb2+ Kh6 37.Rxf5! Nxc4 38.Rxh5+! Kxh5 39.Qg7! etc.
Aug-18-08  Woody Wood Pusher: I thought 37. Bg8! was the last surprise as well lol, 37. Rxf5! as well huh. Seems like there is two ways this game can be tied up then, 34. Nxf7 for the computers and tactics fans and 37. Bxf7 for the positional won endgame approach!
Nov-04-16  Howard: So, Karpov apparently missed a quicker win. For the record, Inside Chess gave this game with no notes at all.
Aug-07-18  Howard: For the record, Karpov stated in Informant 51 that 21.Rad1 ! would have given him a won position. Seems a bit premature to me.
