13th Chess Game in Championship Match Ends in Draw

November 14, 1987|JACK PETERS

The 13th game of the world chess championship between Gary Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov ended in a draw Friday in Seville, Spain. Kasparov, the champion, leads the series, 3-2 in wins and 7-6 in points. Six wins or 12 1/2 points are needed for victory in the 24-game match.

Friday's game was hard fought. It began with the Gruenfeld defense, which Kasparov has used in all seven of his games with black. Karpov obtained a tiny advantage from the opening but could not make progress after Kasparov managed to blockade white's passed pawn. Near the end, Kasparov had an edge, which also proved insufficient for a win.

The next game is scheduled for Monday. Here are the moves in Friday's game:

Karpov-Kasparov 13: 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 d5 4 Nf3 Bg7 5 cxd5 Nxd5 6 e4 Nxc3 7 bxc3 c5 8 Rb1 0-0 9 Be2 cxd4 10 cxd4 Qa5+ 11 Qd2 Qxd2+ 12 Bxd2 e6 13 0-0 b6 14 Rfd1 Bb7 15 d5 exd5 16 exd5 Nd7 17 Bb4 Rfc8 18 Be7 Bf6 19 d6 Kg7 20 Re1 Rc5 21 Bb5 Bc6 22 Bxc6 Rxc6 23 Rbd1 Bc3 24 Re3 f6 25 g4 g5 26 h4 h6 27 hxg5 hxg5 28 Nd4 Bxd4 29 Rxd4 Rh8 30 Re1 Rc2 31 a4 a5 32 f4 Kg6 33 fxg5 Kxg5 34 Rf1 Kg6 35 Rf2 Rhc8 36 Rdf4 Rxf2, Drawn.
