I think this will be a great match. But the important thing to remember is that never before in our lifetimes have we had such a fantastic opportunity to see Anatoly Karpov in "extreme 3D"!! For those of us who thought Karpov in regular 3D just wasn't good, or maybe... extreme, enough, this is perhaps the crowning glory of technology! Kasparov and Karpov "floating in space inside AND in front of the computer screen"-- I'm just speechless.

It's 1-1 Rather surprisingly both games were won with the Black pieces.

i want Karpov wins because I like his style better. i do not really keep up with chess news, i rather would watch Petrosian or Botwinnik games. but the style of Karpov matches my favor.

URAA Karpov! :-)

So the games were won with the Gruenfeld defense and the Petroff defense! Worth jotting them two down then:)

So the eternal K v K series of battles has a new twist in the end, the resurgent Karpov snatching a surprise victory from the hands of the would-be King of Chess. Karpov stuck with his trusty Petroff (my favourite Defence of the moment) and Kasparov continued to place trust in his Gruenfeld.

Kind regards,

Cal
