ANATOLI KARPOV
(born May-23-1951) Russia

[what is this?]
Anatoly Evgenyevich Karpov was born in 1951 in the town of Zlatoust located in the Southern Ural Mountains in the USSR. He learned to play chess at four years old and earned the World Junior Championship in 1969. In 1970 he became an International Grandmaster. A World Championship Candidate in 1973 he defeated Viktor Korchnoi in the 1974 Candidates' final to earn the right to a match with World Champion Robert James Fischer. When FIDE declared Fischer forfeited, Karpov became the 12th World Chess Champion, the youngest ever at the time.

Karpov defended the championship twice against Korchnoi, but in 1985 he lost it to Garry Kasparov. He played three more matches with Kasparov in 1986, 1987 and 1990. Although he failed to defeat Kasparov in each case, all the matches were close.

In 1993 Karpov regained the FIDE title after Kasparov broke away from the organization. He successfully defended his title against Gata Kamsky in 1996 and Viswanathan Anand in 1998. In 1999 FIDE changed the rules, deciding that the World Champion would be determined by an annual knockout tournament, and Karpov retired from championship competition.
