|Oct-08-05|| ||THE pawn: Korchnoi at its best.
The ending was awsome and yet again the kings proves to be the strongest weapon during that part.
|Oct-08-05|| ||Brown: Karpov is how old here? 17?|
|Oct-13-05|| ||THE pawn: He was 19, and Korchnoi 39. a difference of 20 years, but during that period of time, (20 to 45) age doesn't really matter.|
|Oct-21-05|| ||Brown: <TP> Thanks. I was just curious anyways, not trying to find excuses for black.|
|Oct-26-05|| ||THE pawn: Don't worry, I was 5 years old and chessmaster already beat me, I am 18 years old and he still beats me and I'll be 100 years old and he'll still be able to beat me...|
|Feb-26-10|| ||M.D. Wilson: I am really fond of this game. Korchnoi shows great technique. Winning games in this fashion is very nice indeed. Still, Karpov seems to have played somewhat aimlessly; not his best, although he still had much to learn. Given a few more years of sparing with the likes of Tal, Spassky, Furman, Geller and Korchnoi, Karpov's strength increased exponentially.|
|Feb-28-10|| ||M.D. Wilson: <THE pawn: He was 19, and Korchnoi 39. a difference of 20 years, but during that period of time, (20 to 45) age doesn't really matter.> 20 years of experience does matter.|
|Mar-16-13|| ||King Crusher: Trademark endgame play by Korchnoi. Little did he know then of the battles with Karpov that were to come.|
|Apr-18-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Korchnoi could have traded down with 29. Rxd7 Kxd7 30. Bb5 but he obviously had plans for his bishop.|
|Apr-18-17|| ||morfishine: This game proves that Karpov stood no chance vs Fischer in '75|
|Apr-18-17|| ||saffuna: Oh yes, it certainly does. GMs never improve between age 19 and 24.|
|Apr-19-17|| ||morfishine: Thank you <saffuna> for yet another gem of a commentary, in a long list of "gems"|
One of these days you may actually fully grasp the meaning of the word 'sarcasm'
I guess for some people it takes longer for stuff to sink in
|May-21-17|| ||Saniyat24: fantastic...!|
|May-21-17|| ||HeMateMe: nice wedge! Korchnoi played a 'Karpovian' game, here.|
|Jan-19-18|| ||RookFile: Pretty sweet ending by Korchnoi. I thought Karpov defended well after he got a lost position.|
