The full title of the match was “Clash of the Titans Bank Tamara: Adianto-Karpov Match”. Bank Tamara was a local bank in Indonesia who sponsored the match.

Indonesian ace, GM Utut Adianto, possibly inspired by that wordy title, played a match of his life. He led until the penultimate round by winning one game in normal time control and another in rapid blindfold. GM Anatoly Karpov levelled the scoreline after winning the last round played in rapid. That was a tie, 3-3.

Karpov rode his luck when finally he won the decider in a blitz game. Adianto had a brief comment to the journalists about his loss in the blitz game: “Karpov’s hand seems not moving.” After all by sharing 3-3 in the first 6 games with a world champion, Adianto could be proud of himself.
