Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-05-03  Spitecheck: White's position deteriorates quite rapidly after the exchange of queens.


Dec-05-03  Alchemist: White built a proud center but didn't seem to consider the results of his pawn structure after it had been challenged.
Aug-23-06  positionalgenius: Another instructional game from the master.:)

  ToTheDeath: Thematic Nimzo-Indian game against the Saemisch big center. Great strategy against White's bad bishop and weak pawns.

  perfidious: Tony Kosten noted that Karpov had saved 14....d5! for a number of years.

Drab as White's prospects were in the game continuation, 15.exd5 exd5 16.cxd5 Bxd3 17.Qxd3 Qxd5 was even worse for him.

Feb-03-17  Saniyat24: Black did not play badly, but still he got beaten...!

  sea7kenp: <Saniyat24>, Actually, Black (Karpov) won.
