Aug-26-05  sneaky pete: 15.a3 .. is a mistake that should have cost him the game. From move 37 on the game deteriorates in A Lococo.
Aug-26-05  Shams: I'm missing it. what happens on 16.Nxe4?
Aug-26-05  delterp: I don't get 16...♘xe4 either.

However 37...♖c5 is just stupid. Both 37...♘xd6 and 37...♖x♗ seem to win outright for black.

I'm lost.

Aug-26-05  notsodeepthought: <Shams> I think 16 N:e4 Q:e1 17 Q:e1 Nf3+ 18 Kh1 (or Kh2) N:e1 and is good for black.
Aug-26-05  notsodeepthought: Sorry, typo in the above message (the "and" was redundant). Hopefully my analysis was better than my syntax...
Aug-26-05  Shams: thanks...I feel suitably dumb now. <delterp> that must be a game score error?

  Eggman: this gamescore is seriously screwed up. 38...Rf5 and 39...Rxf2+ don't make any sense.
Mar-24-15  Volmac: <Eggman: this gamescore is seriously screwed up. 38...Rf5 and 39...Rxf2+ don't make any sense.> Pia Cramling annotated this game in the Swedish chess book "Iskalla drag" (2003). The gamescore given here is indeed wrong. Black played 34...♘xg4 and 41...♘e3, all other moves seem to be correct.

Both Cramling and Karpov agreed in the analysis after the game that 19...d5! gives black serious winning chances.
