Who is Karpov ?

Anatoly Yevgenyevich Karpov (Russian: Анато́лий Евге́ньевич Ка́рпов; born May 23, 1951) is a Russian chess grandmaster and former World Champion. He was the official world champion from 1975 to 1985 when he was defeated by Garry Kasparov. He played three matches against Kasparov for the title from 1986 to 1990, before becoming FIDE World Champion once again after Kasparov broke away from FIDE in 1993. He held the title until 1999, when he resigned his title in protest against FIDE’s new world championship rules.His tournament successes include over 160 first-place finishes.[1][2] He had a peak Elo rating of 2780, and his 102 total months at world number one is the third longest of all time, behind Magnus Carlsen and Garry Kasparov, since the inception of the FIDE ranking list in 1970.

Who is Kasparov ?

Garry Kimovich Kasparov (Russian: Га́рри Ки́мович Каспа́ров, Russian pronunciation: [ˈɡarʲɪ ˈkʲiməvʲɪtɕ kɐˈsparəf]; born Garik Kimovich Weinstein,[2] 13 April 1963) is a Russian chess grandmaster, former world chess champion, writer, and political activist, whom many consider to be the greatest chess player of all time.[3] From 1986 until his retirement in 2005, Kasparov was ranked world No. 1 for 225 out of 228 months. His peak rating of 2851,[4] achieved in 1999, was the highest recorded until being surpassed by Magnus Carlsen in 2013. Kasparov became the youngest ever undisputed World Chess Champion in 1985 at age 22 by defeating then-champion Anatoly Karpov.[5] He held the official FIDE world title until 1993, when a dispute with FIDE led him to set up a rival organization, the Professional Chess Association.[6] In 1997 he became the first world champion to lose a match to a computer under standard time controls, when he lost to the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue in a highly publicized match. After Kasparov retired, he devoted his time to politics and writing. He formed the United Civil Front movement, and joined as a member of The Other Russia, a coalition opposing the administration and policies of Vladimir Putin. In 2008, he announced an intention to run as a candidate in that year’s Russian presidential race, but failure to find a sufficiently large rental space to assemble the number of supporters that is legally required to endorse such a candidacy led him to withdraw. Kasparov blamed “official obstruction” for the lack of available space.[7] Although he is widely regarded in the West as a symbol of opposition to Putin,[8] he was barred from the presidential ballot,[7] as the political climate in Russia makes it difficult for opposition candidates to organize.[9][10]

Kasparov is currently chairman for the Human Rights Foundation and chairs its International Council. In 2017, he founded the Renew Democracy Initiative (RDI), an …

  1. I especially like that it is a brilliancy featuring a knight vs bishop.

  2. It´s impossible to see the chess board cause of the Ad!

  3. I don't understand those karpov games. He just makes nice moves and all of the sudden he is winning…

  4. I don't know how was in reality, but after Nf5-e3 posision look like very tactic and calculating. May be Antoliy Evgenevich had much better command then Garry Kimovich and calculate main lines better?

  5. 0 Inaccuracies
    0 Mistakes
    0 Blunders
    7 Average centipawn loss
    for Karpov. almost perfect game

  6. Maybe I'm oversimplifying but I think Karpov loved closed positions and positional play, when there's a lot of pawns on the board knights are good. So it's no wonder Karpov decided to play his knight versus Kasparovs Bishop. If you think symbolically the bishop is a more dynamic straightforward piece whereas Knight maneuvers don't have as much range and can switch colors. Karpov is known for his tendency to very slowly rearrange his pieces. I think nowadays there aren't many Karpovs but many find more dynamic play more appealing, funny being that chess is a game of slow deliberate choices.

  7. Snooker is toughest game ever. Scientists proved and Nikola Tesla said that

  8. Karpov was almost 10 years older than Kasparov, otherwise I think Karpov was stronger chess player than Kasparov.

  9. I like your content but sometimes your transition between analysis and the game is awkward and confusing.

  10. After RXB, b4 missing -can ane one explain ?

  11. Just a few moves before Kasparov resigned the game computer analysis shows the game was still at draw at move 66 despite black being two pawns down. The drawing move was 66…Bh1 instead of 66..Bb7.

  12. Greatly explained… I enjoyed a lot

  13. 3:48 why not B4 Now instead of Rad1 . Pleas tell me I can't sleep I need to know 🥺🥺 @kingscrusher

  14. I love your commentary, I think it is the best online. I know its a characteric of your regional accent, but I really wish you would consider pronouncing the number three with a 'th'. I don't mean to be rude but after a while it does get pretty irritating… Just some feedback from a frequent listener :-). Keep up the good work though!

  15. Beautiful illustration of pawn fundamentals.

  16. What a great game. I love the game Between Badula – Orsag 2010 … When Orsag played 17 … d4 instead of 17… Be6 …This is just another great game too.

  17. whos here from winning chess ending bishop vs knight

  18. Karpov had the better seconds back then before computers got strong enough in endings.

  19. I am addicted to your videos. Been binge watching them like a good Netflix series lately 😁

  20. 10 years later, and still arguably one of the greatest Chess videos I've seen on the internet. Even the videos' DESCRIPTION is flawless. Thanks @kingscrusher – you are the real legend on this site. Many come close, but you are #1.

  21. Карпов – непревзойденный гений эндшпиля

  22. 😮Pure intelligence in this video!

  23. So far the best chess commentary watched in YouTube, excellent kc.!!
