Karpov, the top-flite grandmaster that he is, was probably playing too quickly, and just overlooked that the "undevelopment" of an already-developed piece won material. Instead of Qd1, the average player would be inclined to simply complete development, such as Be2 or 0-0-0. But what an opportunity to grab. Is this Christiansen's only game he won against Karpov?

First. A nice way to end my (rather short) daily puzzle career. Today I head back to America. Farewell all, and good luck getting fp! 

 

A simple skewer today. More like a Sunday if you ask me

It's not a skewer, it's a fork.

Farewell!

it's a skewer

 

It's not and you're an idiot.
