Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-09-11  Salaskan: A classic Karpov example of a prophylactic positional squeeze, annotated in John Cox's excellent chapter on the King's Indian in "Starting Out: 1.d4". After 13...Qc7? 14.h3 black was forced to part with his light-squared bishop because the d6 pawn is weak; 14...Bd7 15.dxc6 bxc6 16.Qd2 Kh7 17.Rad1 forces Ne8 when 18.c5 is very strong, and 15...Bxc6 Nd5 is obviously great for white.

Apparently Karpov's opponent was scared of open lines so he played 15...c5?!, but then he had no available breaks except f5. Karpov's quiet piece reorganisation (Re1/f1/Bc2) then ensured that if black ever played f5 or h5, white would stand better after f4 and exchanges. Around move 24 there's already really nothing black can do but wait, while white has the plans of Rh1-h4-h5, f4-fxe5 with a passed d-pawn or after exf4 Bxf4 with pressure on d6 after Nb5, or even queenside play with b4. Black tried to get counterplay by arranging b5, but typically, Karpov had an answer to that. Then look at the position after move 32... :-)
