Chess Masterpieces: Timman vs. Karpov, 1984

NM SamCopeland

Anatoly Karpov is one of my favorite chess players. He demonstrates perfect harmony in his chess games and thrives at one of my weak points: anticipating his opponent's ideas. In this game against Jan Timman, he finds a brilliant prophylactic move to stifle Timman's attack and then initiate a brilliant assault of his own.

Here are my annotations to the game, including thoughts on many moves not covered in the video analysis.

I hope you enjoyed this game as much as I did. If you liked the game and analysis, consider sharing it with a friend and check out more videos on youtube or live streams on Twitch.
