Kasparov and Karpov played a 12 game (4 Rapid and 8 blitz) match in Valencia 21st-24th September 2009. The match was on the 25th Anniversary of the start of their infamous first aborted match in Moscow in 1984-5, this was followed by an epic series of close World title matches which ended in Lyon 1990.

Kasparov outclassed Karpov throughout the match. The match confirmed the recent impression that Karpov has ceased to work on the game and is no longer competitive. Kasparov seemed pretty sharp although it is hard to say with complete assurance how good he still is as the opposition was so poor. In particular Karpov was mishandling the clock very badly (lost game 4 of the blitz on time in a favourable position) and collapsing at the end of games when he had little or no time, even in level positions. It is to be hoped that Karpov can at least show some pride and do some work for the second match in France in December. Kasparov won the rapid 3-1 and the blitz 6-2 for a resounding 9-3 win.
