Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-24-05  Karpova: 20...Nb8! a very good move. black has the intention to drive away the bb6 (21.h5 bf5 22qf4 qb5!)

21...qd7! now black has the initiative (22.red1? rc7: 23.rd7: rc1:+ 24.kh2 nd7:)

26...qe7 (26..qc7? 27.be6:!)

40...bb6 an inaccuracy (40...bb8!)

42.g4 (42.rd2! was stronger)

45...na5:! 46.ba rc5! black at once wins back the piece

71...ke6 (71...rb4 72.rc3 bd4 wins easier)

101.ra1 draw agreed (the game score is wrong)

black wins after 101...rc2! 102.a7 rh2 but they had already passed the third time control and only seconds were left for both players. it's disappointing for karpov but the result shouldn't distract from his great endgame play.

Jul-29-13  offramp: 91...Rc2 looks like a killer with the threats of mate and taking the knight. In fact 91...Rh2 should win.

93.a6 looks like a strong move for white. But as Karpova says, neither player had any time.
