    Great combination. I noticed that you didnt pause the video to give the viewer a chance to solve it. Is this because it is simply too difficult for most people to find?

    What a nice combination. The position before Nf6 seemed to me completely harmless, really impressing how Karpov destroyed black's position in just 4 or 5 moves. I think nearly everyone would have played Qe4 just to get a little release by queen exchange, but you can see, one never should be sleeping while playing chess against an (ex)-world champion. :-)

    Karpov plays with outstanding style . This video should be recommended for top players across the planet.

    Roman, great video: I appreciated your personal insights expressed herein , especially the philosophy of having no enemies and of having a diplomatic approach to life in general...life is too short to to do the opposite. Regarding Karpov's style, what's so amazing about his approach to chess is that he could be so defensive yet somehow offensive at the same time(prophylactic). I'm also impressed by the fact that he even though he knows he's still one of the top chess players on the planet, he's also just a nice guy. His chess playing style is like a boa constrictor where he slowly squeezes and eventually smothers his opponent with consistently solid positional moves. The fact that a player of Topalov's calibre could overlook this kind of tactical shot makes me wonder if it is always possible to see everything my opponent is up to(I suspect not!)...but somehow I think we also miss/fail to notice the obvious and not so obvious things in daily living as well...maybe there's a lesson here for us all? I look forward to your next video on this true chess great and gentleman.

    Very interesting video...

    He who laughs last, laughs best. Korchnoi is playing still quite strong, but Karpov seems to be a shadow of his best years.

    Also interesting is the comment about trainer Furman. There was a 60 minute program on Channel 1 on Russian TV (opening scene --an old out of shape Karpov in a sauna, not a good sight. How do you say, bolshoi karova?). Karpov was claiming he played so much after he won the title from Fischer to honor his trainer Furman. Yeah, right Karpov....Everybody understands Karpov played so much to try to prove his championship title ,which he won by forfeit, was legitimate.

    That was an AWESOME combo. I also believe that what Karpov said about seeing the whole thing was true.
