Anatoly Karpov (1951) is one of the greatest chess players of all time. The Russian grandmaster was World Champion from 1975 to 1985. He became World Champion when the American Bobby Fischer refused to defend his title. And he was dethroned when he lost a match to Garry Kasparov in 1985. Karpov was ranked the World's number one player for 90 months. He won well over a hundred top-tournaments.
Karpov's play was deceptively simple. He always found good moves to glue his his position together. 'Finding the right plan is the key to success', said Karpov. But he always had a sharp eye for tactical solutions as well.
