Karpov vs. Timman

Karpov, Anatoly vs. Timman, Jan H

The 12th World Champion Anatoly Karpov takes on Jan Timman during the Basamro International Junior Chess Tournament being held in Murmansk from 6-9 October. The match consists of four classical games in which the players have 2 hours for 40 moves followed by 30 minutes for the rest of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 41. The match will be played in the Chimney Hall of the Park Inn hotel. The two chess legends have played 99 official games of classical chess (including a World Championship match in 1993), so symbolically they will play their 100th game as the city of Murmansk also celebrates its centenary.
