What a greatest warrior back then when for example Kasparov blunders, Seville 1987, 23rd WC game

Karpov vs Kasparov

Kasparov vs Karpov, 1987Seville, Spain
In 1987, the candidates' cycle format was changed for the first time since 1965. A Candidates Tournament was played involving twelve qualifiers from three interzonals, plus four seeds. The top four qualifiers from this tournament advanced to a series of candidates matches. The winner of this 4-man knockout played a match against Anatoly Karpov who was seeded directly into the candidates' finals (!) for the privilege of playing a World Championship match against Kasparov in 1987.[1]
After Karpov handily defeated Andrei Sokolov 7½-3½ in the candidates' finals, the stage was set for the fourth confrontation between Karpov and Kasparov, this time to be held in Seville, Spain.
The match took place from October 12 to December 18, 1987. The match was tied going into the 23rd game, when Karpov achieved a fine victory from the English Opening, making the match score 12-11 in Karpov's favor. Kasparov, needing a win in the final round to retain his title, managed to do exactly that in 24th game, a feat which had not been accomplished since Lasker vs Schlechter in 1910.
With a tie score of 12-12, Garry Kasparov retained the World Championship title.

Obama pushes for ObamaCare enrollments after Texas judge deems law unconstitutional

President Trump immediately tweeted following the ruling, urging Congress to pass a “strong” health care bill that would cover pre-existing conditions -- a component that Democrats have long criticized Republicans for ignoring.
“A lot of good people are fighting to ensure that nothing about your care will change. The ACA protects your pre-existing conditions, no matter how you get your insurance,” Obama said Saturday.
“But all of this should also be a reminder that Republicans will never stop trying to undo all that. If they can’t get it done in Congress, they’ll keep trying in the courts, even when it puts people’s pre-existing conditions coverage at risk.”
California and other several other stated with opposing views on ObamaCare are likely to challenge the new ruling through an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Fox News’ Matt Richardson and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Barack Obama took to social media Saturday to urge people to sign up for health care on the final day of Affordable Care Act enrollment. His appeal came a day after a Texas judge struck down the former president’s signature legislation as unconstitutional.
