Karpov's antidote to Kortschnoj's kingside pawn storming


Chess is an individual sport and a chess game is dispute between just two players (with the obvious exception of those cases in which one of them is cheating). Therefore, when I decided embarking on the project of writing about Kortschnoj's pawn storming based on g4–g5 in his games against Karpov, I suspected little or not at all that I would have to introduce into the scene a third silhouette. Apart from being a strong grandmaster, Semen Abramovich Furman is widely known to have coached Anatoly Karpov while climbing the chess Everest until the very top.
