The game was played in Moscow in 1983 in the Championship of the Soviet Union. Karpov plays at his super-subtle best and his strategy is a prime example of ‘prophylactic thinking.

This game is one of 45 in the book The Most Exciting Chess Games ever. The first video, part 1, is 45 minutes, and the other parts are around 30 minutes each.
