If the read er p l ay s through the s i x th game of the match , he may get the i m p ression that the play is rather d u l l and em pty. F rom the ve ry f i rst mo ves the p l ayers use very subt l e methods in t h e i r f i g h t for the possession of the key poi nts on the chess-boa rd , c l ose l y watch i ng a l l the t i m e each other's intentions.

As a resu lt, the pace of Kasparov's attack s l ackened and , wh e n the Rooks had been ex changed , i t beca m e clear that both sides had eq u a l chances.

After Karpov's rep l y , however, the game transposes to a convent i o n a l l i n e. N b 8-d7 4. Nd 2xe4 N g8-f6 5.

In the twe l fth enco u nter, both pl ayers proceeded with extrem e caut ion. Anatoly Karpov, fo r his part, was in no h u r ry to start act ivities.
