Wednesday 28 January 1998
After a slow start, the game erupted into violence when Anand advanced his K-side pawns to open lines for his rooks. Karpov countered by dodging out of the way with his king (29.Kf2 and 32.Ke3), preparing to meet 32...hxg3 with 33.Rh1! with his own attacking plans on the g- and h-files. Anand delayed the capture on g3, but the position became complex when he finally played it at move 36.
Black's 41...d4+ was an inspired way to keep the white king in the firing line, and Karpov had to tread warily as his king insisted on leading its army from the front. At the end, Anand emerged with an extra pawn, but could not avoid perpetual check from the white queen.
Latest news: Karpov was beaten by Topalov in round nine and now languishes among the Dutchmen at the wrong end of the table. Scores: Anand 6; Polgar, Timman, Kramnik and Shirov 51/2; Gelfand and Topalov 5; Adams 41/2; Piket, Karpov, van der Sterren Nijboer and Salov 31/2; van Wely 3.
White: Anatoly Karpov
Black: Viswanathan Anand
