  Benzol: The Games Of Anatoly Karpov has his first name as Amikan. Is Amikam correct?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Paul> Amikam is the spelling I have seen in all other sources.

  Benzol: <Alan> Thanks.


The game between Karpov and Balshan seems to have the players reversed too. I have submitted a correction slip.

Jan-17-13  eyalbd: Correct name is "Amikam". This is a Hebrew name which ends with a letter that spells like 'M'
