Karpov started with 4 wins in first 9 games and scores looked like 4-0 in favor of Karpov. Chess experts predicted quick whitewash from there on & Karpov would win without losing a single game. It was followed with 17 successive draws & game 27 was won by Karpov, taking the score in his favor 5-0. Karpov was a win away from defending his title and concluding the match!
