Anatoly Karpov was the 12th world champion and is considered by many to be one of the greatest players of all time. His tournament successes include over 160 first-place finishes. He had a peak Elo rating of 2780, and his 90 total months at world number one is second all-all time just behind Garry Kasparov.

Karpov’s legendary endgame technique has always been something of an enigma. Here GM Kraai takes you through a series of Karpov’s endgames to show the subtle complexities going on.


Content: 68 minutes of instruction and analysis in a series of 3 lectures.  PGN Included

Fans on said: "Fantastic lecture. I hope we get a lot more Karpov games. I'm glad to see someone speak out against the silly term "technique". Winning a positionally won game requires lots of tactics and ideas, not the implied machine-like boring play." - FM Eric Peterson
