Oct-29-08  Bobsterman3000: I don't understand Karpov's moves from 32-36.

  Stonehenge: 31...Rf8 threatens both Qxf2+ and Bxg3. 32.Qe3 d4 sucks also.
Oct-29-08  refutor: very smooth game by Nakamura.
Oct-30-08  chessamateur: Did Karpov really play 53. Kd4?
Oct-30-08  hedgeh0g: <Did Karpov really play 53. Kd4?>

He probably had a very subtle positional idea in mind.

Oct-31-08  Woody Wood Pusher: 32.Bf4!? I just don't get it...maybe time trouble...

  FSR: <Woody Wood Pusher> 32.Bf4 was desperation, since Karpov had no way to defend against 32...Qxf2+, e.g. 32.Be3 Bxg3; 32.Qe3 d4; 32.Qe1 Bc3!
Nov-04-08  talfan: <Did Karpov really play 53. Kd4?>

Usually the king is put on the centre of the board when his owner resigns.

Nov-18-08  morphyum: 32.Be3 Bxg3? 33.Qd4!

  Check It Out: 32.Be3 Qf6 33.R moves Bxg3
Feb-08-09  ToTheDeath: 31. Re7? was a bad error, allowing the cheapo on the f file. 31.Be3 is completely equal.
