In the 2nd game, Kasparov opened with 1. d4 again and they played a Queen’s Gambit decline, exchange variation. In the middlegame, Kasparov was able to get a slight advantage when Karpov blundered by not considering the move 22. Nf6+ which gives Kasparov an extraordinary attack against the King. This game ended in 28 moves when Karpov resigned in view of an unstoppable mating attack.
