Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-14  Karpova: The decisive mistake is said to have been 16...f6 and 16...Bg4 suggested instead, with the following line: <16...Bg4 17.Qxg4 Qxg5 18.Qxg5 Rxg5 19.Nxc7>, while <17...Rxg5 18.Re8+ Qxe8 19.Qxg5> is supposedly better for White, although it seems that it may be slightly better for Black than the other line 19...Qe5 20.Qxe5 dxe5 21.Nxc7 Rd8. 17.Rxe5 is also being an option worth looking at.

The move 17...g6 is not annotated, although this may be the decisive mistake, allowing the combination by weakening the kingside even more. What about 17...Re6 instead?
