|Jan-13-06|| ||Pawn Ambush: g4 must be protected!|
|Jan-13-06|| ||shor: why must g4 be protected?
if karpov will capture on g4,
korchnoi will just check with the queen.
|Jan-18-06|| ||Pawn Ambush: Your right maybe I think it makes sense for black to try and advance his e-pawn so I think 71...was made to unpin the e-pawn Imagine this position after an exchange of queens: blacks pawn on e3 and his rook on f2 to win black must make use of that back rank mate threat!|
|Mar-23-06|| ||Daodejing: Very nice win by Korchnoi over his lifetime rival.
Happy 75th birthday Viktor.
|May-01-06|| ||goldenbear: This is fantastic play by Korchnoi. I am amazed.|
|Jul-17-06|| ||Inf: umm a very rare game involving 2 queens for a lil bit of time play... any more games like this one??|
|Jul-17-06|| ||WannaBe: <Inf> Only 3 queens on the board?! That's nothing, check this out: Game Collection: Multi-queens!|
|Sep-04-06|| ||Ulhumbrus: Korchnoi improves upon the game which he lost against Karpov in 1984 at the London Philips & Drew tournament. This game seems worth comparing with that one to see the results of the changes in Korchnoi's play over that game.|
|Dec-25-06|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Earlier in this thread (on the first page and perhaps elsewhere) there was some discussion whether 61. f8=N+ would have been better than Karpov's 61. f8=Q. According to the following analysis presented in Zenon Franco’s recent book, Winning Chess Explained, the under-promotion should have been sufficient to draw:|
61.f8=N+ Kg8 [or 61...Kh6 62.gxf4 Qf7 (if 62...Qc8 63.Qc5 Qxc5 (not 63...Rxe3?? 64.Qd6+ Kg7 65.Qe7+ Kg8 66.Ne6 ) 64.Nxg4+ Kh5 65.Nf6+ Kh6 66.Ng4+ with a draw) 63.Qb8 Rxe3 (or 63...Kg7 64.Qe5+ Kxf8 65.Nf5=) 64.Qd6+ Kg7 (not 64...Kh5?? 65.Qe5+ Kh6 66.Qg5#) 65.Ne6+ Kg6 66.Nf8+ Kg7=] 62.Nxe6 Bxe3+ 63.Kh1 Rb1 64.Qb8+ Kf7 65.Qf8+ Kxe6 66.Qe8+ Kd6 67.Qe5+ Kc6 68.Qe6+ Kc7 69.Qe5+ with a draw by perpetual check.
|Jun-26-07|| ||Timex: A lovely game. This game shows that a bishop and a rook can still be formidable.|
|Jul-18-07|| ||technical draw: Korchy was a pretty good player. He has to be the true living legend around now.|
|Jul-21-07|| ||KholdStare: Wow, now this is chess. It's rare to see two queens on the board and the game continues. It's even rarer to see the player with two queens lose.|
|Jul-21-07|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <KholdStare> What's even rarer is to see a player with three queens losing: Belov vs Prohorov, 1991 :)|
|Oct-28-07|| ||Whitehat1963: Probably the most difficult long game in the Guess-the-Move database.|
|Apr-26-08|| ||Major Dude: Korchnoi, the strongest player never to become world champion. What a game, wow!!!!|
|Sep-16-08|| ||PolishPentium: 61 f8=N+, forking King and Queen.
|Sep-16-08|| ||Woody Wood Pusher: OK so Karpov's 2 queens didn't help, but having beaten Korchnoi everytime it really mattered, he probably wasn't too upset. |
Great game though.
|Sep-16-08|| ||JuliusCaesar: Korchnoi annotated this game in-depth for New in Chess. Fascinating stuff, as I recall, not just the move-by-move analysis but also his interesting and entertaining reflections on the game and his formidable opponent. Korchnoi, who's often scathing about other player's abilities/prospects, has nothing but respect for Karpov the chessplayer.|
|Sep-17-08|| ||ToTheDeath: The game is also annotated in Glenn Flear's Grandmaster Chess.|
<61 f8=N+, forking King and Queen.
Yes that's a better chance, Flear thinks it should draw. The lines are ungodly complicated but here's a sample: 61. f8=N+ Kh6 62. gxf4 Qf7 63. Qb8 Kg7 64. a6 Ba8 65. Qxa8 Rxe3 66. a7 Ra3 67. Ne6+ Qxe6 68. Qb7+ =.
|Jan-02-09|| ||WhiteRook48: wow. extra queens don't really win|
|Feb-23-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Korchnoi just tears Karpov's position apart.|
|Feb-25-09|| ||M.D. Wilson: A revenge for Viktor!|
|Oct-17-09|| ||sac2win: lols what a game. karpov is helpless even with 2 queens!!! korchnoi gets the better of mr.anatoli...|
|Aug-18-10|| ||sevenseaman: Bigamy is no help!|
|Jul-06-11|| ||Albertan: In the "Just Checking" column in New In Chess Magazine #5/2004, GM Ivanchuk calls this game "the best game" he ever saw played.|
