  Honza Cervenka: Karpov à la Tal.
Jan-12-06  Steppenwolf: 30. Re2, Qd3+! (if Rd2, Qf1 mate; if Qd2, BxB+).
Jan-12-06  Pawsome: <Steppenwolf> After 30. Re2 Qd3+. can't white prolong things with 31. Ke1? Instead, 30.Re2 Qf1+ 31 Re1 ( 31, Kd2 Bc3+ & 32 ... Qxf1) Qd3+ 32. Qd2 Bc2+ 33. Kc1 Bb2+ followed by Qxd2 does white in.
Jan-14-06  Steppenwolf: Yo! Pawsome, your analysis just repeats the same moves as mine but losing 2 moves for nothing!
Feb-08-06  Everett: <Steppenwolf> Pawsome's 30...Qf1+ 31.Re1 Qd3+ keeps the white rook on e1, so the king can wriggle to e1 after your check on d3. Your finishing lines are the same, as you state.

That is very pretty, but White can play 31.Bh7+ Kxh7 32.Qc2+ f5 33.Bb4 and avoid the combination. Of course his position is still hopeless.

  Domdaniel: Such a fantastic game ... played more than ten years after Karpov was supposed to be past his best. Played at a rapid time control, it shows that Anatoly's love for the game and understanding of its deeper patterns never went away.

Despite being eclipsed, to an extent, by Kasparov, this game is a demonstration of just how strong Karpov could be. A beautiful win - playing Black in Rapid!
