World Chess Champion from 1975-1985! One-half of one of the richest chess rivalries in history against Garry Kasparov! Former FIDE President candidate! He has seen and done it all in the world of chess and today (May 23rd) he celebrates his 60th birthday!
Chessbase has done a great article on him and here is the link for you all to enjoy!
Happy Birthday Anatoly!
Happy Birthday! He is my favourite chess player ( hate to be padantic but he was also World Champion 1993-99)
Karpov was born in 1951 so he will be 61 this year , these belated birthday wishes can be confusing !
And now his 61st is imminent! May 23rd [1st degree of Gemini].
