Will not the stalemating mechanism operate after 64 ... ~a1+ 65 'it>g2 ttJe3+! (66 fxe3? ~h1+! 67 'it>f2 ~f1+ 68 'it>xf1 - stalemate)? Alas, on closer examination of this illusion it transpires that after 66 'it>f3! ' (Zaitsev) 63 (5 1-0 An interesting game, full of instructive analogies with two of my previous wins this never occurred again in my career. The situation before the last round was 34 highly unusual: I was on '+6', whereas the other contestants had not more than 50%. Something similar had already occurred with me at the super-tournament in Brussels (1986), where only Korchnoi, by winning in the last round, climbed to '+1'.

Then not 42 ... t2Jf8? 43 'iVe3! l:txb7 44 l:txb8! and wins (Karpov, Zaitsev), but 42 ... l:txb7 43 ~xb7 ~d5+ 44 ~xd5 exd5 45 \t>f3 g5 with prospects of a draw. However, 42 c4! was again strong, with the sequel 42 ... ~d4 43 l:tf4 ~2 (43 ... xh7 ~xh7 45 ~e4+ ~h8 46 ~xe6, and this time White has a won heavy piece endgame. 42 ... ~g8 43l:te7 t2Jf8 44 ~f3 44 ... C4! (09) An excellent chance! 'Exploiting the fact that White did not playa timely c3-c4 and has not taken control of the very important d5-square' (Zaitsev).

So that "only" +6 for the world champion is an excellent advertisement for the championship of the country! After all, Kasparov did not play worse than in Amsterdam or Belfort. It was simply that there he didn't have the same opponents. But now everyone was clinging on 'Jor dear life". The fact that to maintain his rating Kasparov had to score +8 indicates that most Soviet players are rather under-rated.... After all, this was a high result. And the fact that the winners finished 10 points ahead of their nearest rivals indicates that on this occasion victory was gained by them with an obvious superiority.
