The diagram shows the adjourned position in the first game of the Fide world title match between Karpov (White, to play) and Kamsky in Elista, Kalmykia.

Karpov's powerful passed a-pawn looks like a winning advantage, though he lost his grip on the game slightly in the seventh hour of play, after outplaying his challenger earlier in the game. Here are the full moves to the adjournment.
