Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-07  azi: A very nice game by Korchnoi. From a 'humble' opening (almost a reverse hedgehog for a move or two) he steadily improved his pieces' positions. I liked especially how he used his Queen to exploit the dark square diagonals from move 34 to the end of the game. The final infiltration and assault on the Black king is instructive too. Easy to see why Korchnoi was a repeated challenger for the world's best. And still a force to be reckoned with.
