Mar-15-11  fab4: Karpov's prime was around 1980-84'

Excellent play from Tukmakov. 21..g5 walking right into it.

It's a blitz game.

It wasn't Karpov's prime.

You're an idiot.

Happy now?

  Benzol: Karpov got his revenge in the other game these two played in this Moscow Blitz tourney

Karpov vs V Tukmakov, 1972

Mar-22-14  Conrad93: Karpov was already in his prime by the 70's.

He started to decline in the early 90's.

Mar-22-14  N0B0DY: I would really like to analyse this blitz game in-depth.
Mar-22-14  1971: Feel free.
Mar-24-14  offramp: I think Karpov was near his best, at least relative to his opponents, in 1974. He improved until at least Linares 1994. After about 1997 there was a definite trailing off - a whole new generation had arrived.
