|Jul-12-11|| ||Albertan: Juninho there is no link to give. You either have to own or buy the Chess Informant in question either in book form or cd. The game is annotated in Chess Informant 61, and is also available from Chess Informant in their Chess Informant 1-91 Cd.|
|Jul-12-11|| ||cunctatorg: This game is a rare masterpiece, a real gem!!
When this masterpiece will become a game of the day?!?
|Aug-27-11|| ||cunctatorg: What a Truly Titanic Clash of Titans!!
Karpov seemed to have a horrible position, a result of the stubborn and imaginative Korchnoi's play and then the pawn e3 (that was under the closest "surveillance", not blockaded though!!...) advances with 51. e4!! and Anatoly comes out with tremendous counter-play!!
However Victor, the 63 years old Victor Korchnoi was able to take care of Anatoly's ... two (2) Queens!!...
Victor Korchnoi: victorious -at age 63- against two (2) Anatoly Karpov's Queens in more than seventy moves!!... Brrrr......
|Sep-13-11|| ||sevenseaman: Tweaking the balance of power? Korchnoi saw that liquidating the R and N was more important than to stop queening! Karpov thought an extra queen to be more rewarding and so gave up a R and a N.|
|Sep-13-11|| ||Nilsson: And Korchnoi missed the strong move 45...c5!
|Sep-13-11|| ||ZeejDonnelly: An extraordinarily complicated and beautiful game. First time seeing it; somewhat surprising, considering the amount of kibitzing.|
|Sep-13-11|| ||whiteshark: marker|
|Sep-13-11|| ||WannaBe: <ZeejDonnelly> If you think that way, maybe you should check out some of of AJ Goldsby games, they have pages and pages and pages of kibitz'n!!!|
(On the second thought, don't check them out...)
|Sep-13-11|| ||vsiva1: Balck's advanced pawn combo at h3 and h4 is more powerful than anything else, making White king cornered and restrict free movement. Viktor's wise move 26..., Kh7 advance thinking made support for Bishop later. VIKTOR IS TRUE VICTOR|
|Sep-13-11|| ||HeMateMe: after this game, Anatoly said "Viktor, will you please help me prepare for my next match with Kasparov?"|
|Sep-13-11|| ||KingV93: Very impressive game by Korchnoi, beating Karpov at his own game it seems. I really enjoy how bold allowing 61.f8= appears and yet Blacks exploits his positional plusses to win still. Great game.|
|Sep-13-11|| ||Garech: Fantasic game, and they used my pun too! I will posting a Fischer-Korchnoi game at KillegarChess.com shortly, be sure to have a look!|
|Sep-13-11|| ||kevin86: Interesting choice of pun since the same two players played a World Championship match in 1978-and "the Victor" was not the victor. lol|
|Sep-13-11|| ||ewan14: Fabulous !|
|Sep-13-11|| ||Jack Kerouac: I always thought Korchnoi was the bravest chess player I've ever seen.
As Fischer once said,Paraphrase,' I never knew what he(Korchnoi) was really thinking'. Not totally true, but totally believable.|
|Jun-08-12|| ||Tigranny: This game made me like Viktor more as a player. And as a general concept, queens can often be overrated! :)|
|Aug-13-12|| ||messachess: Yes, this is a really nice game.--very deep by Korchnoi ( and at about the height of Kapov's powers!)|
|Aug-17-12|| ||Arturo2nd: Must have been a very sweet day for Victor Korchnoi. He definitely gave Karpov and the Soviet chess mafia a run for their money in 1978. Mr. Karpov owes a lot to Campomanes. Even Emanual Lasker never came close to Korchnoi's strength as a senior citizen.|
|Aug-17-12|| ||Petrosianic: Campomanes destroyed Karpov. It was his idea to end KK1, and Karpov, in a moment of weakness (as one top GM put it) went along with it.|
Dumbest thing Karpov ever did. If he had lost KK1 by a 6-5 score, Kasparov would have been the bad guy. Everyone would have said that Karpov was the better player and Kasparov won by outsitting him. If Karpov had resigned the match after Game 48 saying he was physically unable to continue, even though he was leading 5-3, Kasparov would have looked even worse. What actually happened was the <only> scenario where Kasparov comes out looking like the Good Guy.
But basically Karpov owes nothing to Campo. He needed friends like that like he needed a hole in the head.
|Aug-17-12|| ||Psihadal: <Arturo2nd>
I've said this before and I'll say it again:
The abortion of the 1984 match was a huge injustice towards Karpov, which resulted in him losing his title in a match which he clearly dominated (Kasparov Achieved his first victory only on game 32, that says a lot).
The thought that Kasparov was able to erase a 2 game deficit and start a new match from scratch is just absurd, even if Kasparov did well to make it look like a conspiracy against him and that the decision actually favoured Karpov.
|Aug-18-12|| ||HeMateMe: 1) Karpov was exhausted, 2) Kasparov had won two games and was about to win a third, 3) Campomanes stepped in to save Karpov from a potentially humiliating match collapse.|
I remember following the match game by game, as it happened. No news in the New York Times for two straight days. Then, on the third day, a Sunday I think, we see a photo of an angry Kasparov at a FIDE/participants meeting, who feels cheated, as the match in anulled just when he is picking up steam and winning games.
|Jan-27-13|| ||solskytz: In watching this game I like the move 63. Queen f to a8 - with the threat to push a6.|
|Jan-27-13|| ||solskytz: Shame that it isn't workable on account of ...Rb1|
|Jan-27-13|| ||solskytz: For example 63. Qfa8 Rb1 64. Q8xb7+ Rxb7 65. Qxb7+ Kg6 66. a6 Qf6 67. Qb1 Qf2 and 68...Be3 ouch!|
|May-12-13|| ||Jonathan Sarfati: Korchnoi learned from Korchnoi vs E German, 1962, where he had drawn with a weaker player despite obtaining two queens. Korchnoi explained:|
"During the analysis, I discovered something very remarkable: the board is simply too small for two Queens of the same color. They only get in each other's way. I realize that this might sound stupid, but I fully mean it. The advantage is much less than one would expect by counting material."
Also in A Reshko vs V Faibisovich, 1969. White has only two minors for Q, but the pair of extra Qs means he has the advantage. Again, the board is too small for two Qs.
