CHESS

Kasparov and Karpov for the last 20 years. The game that earned Salov his semi-final place is a good example. White's 10.Bb1 and 11.Qd3 looks crude, but in conjunction with 12.Qf3 began to create the central pawn majority and black-square bind that eventually won the game.

Most remarkably of all, 21...e5, which looked just the move to free Black's game, was only the start of his problems.
