    247827_2104884822518_5318034_n.jpg I agree, we need some more about Karpov. (Clermont Ferrand 1989).

    I'm 99 % sure that it must be Tania Sachdev.

    Thanks. I was a fan of Karpov because of how Bobby didn't defend the title. And we are both were Capa Fana.

    Hey Henrik, Gibraltar looks like an interesting place to visit!
    Not so much during winter time though when the main tournament takes place.
    Anatoly looks like he loved the place immensely and gave WGM Tania Sachdev a most interesting interview.
    Here's an interview of hers at 7 yo when she had already developed her chess and other talents.

    More of my 2020, European trip on the Places thread I might need your assistance re Gibraltar there! Cheers!

    @ Elliott

    I can tell you - or others, if they want - a lot about Gibraltar. I have played in Gibraltar four times. One of my "childhood friends" lives in Spain and works in Gibraltar, so I have also been at Gibraltar outside "the chess season" too. During the tournament I live in Spain and had to cross the border and the airport runway(!) I always come in a good time, because there so much chess around me, whenever I start early or late.

    The tournament is held east on the rock, most of the life, most of the hotel are West. The Spanish neighbor city La Linia is a poor city with a lot of unemployed people. I always learned to take care, when I in the late evenings walk in the dark first 400 metres from the border to the central place.

    I recently saw a video where they claimed Nigel Short thought he was playing Bobby Fischer online and lost 0-8 to Bobby. Short who had also been playing Karpov thought Fischer was the superior player. This comment differs from the comments in the Karpov interview above with Tania.

    Fascinating! Thanks for posting.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    I met Anatoly Karpov outside the old VCA centre at Elizabeth Street in the late '80s as he was leaving to visit the old "Friends of USSR (?)" centre and book shop down the road where you could find
    some chess books and lots of magazines like the 64 and Shakhmatny (then) Bulletin for next to nothing. Nice and polite guy. The then VCA and now ACF president Gary Wastell
    had extensive talks with him.
    I also know that Angelo Tsagarakis met him there too.
    The ex WC's tour to Australia was organized by David Salter (*)
    Searching my archives to find info re Karpov, I have discovered some beauties which I will post in Australian Chess History thread when I have time.

    Thanks Henrik, and thanks for the illustrated Gibraltar report on Face Book!

    La Linia is a poor city with a lot of unemployed people. I always learned to take care,
    haha I have similar experience from across the ditch, Casablanca, Rabat and Marrakesh have parts which aren't exactly
    the safest places in the world!

    when I in the late evenings walk in the dark first 400 metres from the border to the central place.
    Was the picture with that blonde Valkyrie type beauty taken in one of those "dark" places?

    (*) I found this bit of information in one of Financial Review Ian Rogers articles (as usual a wealth of Australian chess history sources) dated September 1988.
    Now, I have to ask Ian (maybe at Begonia) if David Salter is the dad of the then Sydney talented micro - junior Michael Salter.
