|Jan-21-02|| ||Sneaky: It's amazing to me how Korchnoi brings his queen out into the center so early in the game, and yet no harm became of it, not a single tempo was lost. |
|Jan-21-02|| ||knight: In the final position white will emerge with an extra piece. |
|Jun-11-04|| ||PawnBlock: Neat game. Very sicilian feel in W's attack.
Much more comfortable for W since B lacks the typical attack lines from the Sicilian (b and c files, and a1-h8 diag.)
|Jan-18-06|| ||popski: Sicilian? Hmm, I don't see any half open sicilian lines here... More looks like Philidor transposition. Nice game indeed.|
|Aug-28-07|| ||wolfmaster: 3...Be7 is a very passive move.|
|Oct-08-07|| ||ChessDude33: <wolfmaster> Although it is very passive, it can also be very solid. Check out Spassky drawing with this beast! -> Nunn vs Spassky, 1980 =P|
In my opinion...the problems started with 4...exd4
|Jan-23-11|| ||wwall: This game was played in the 1946 Leningrad Junior Championship. From this tournament, Korchnoi qualified for the USSR Junior Championship, which Petrosian won with 13 wins and 2 draws. Korchnoi was in the bottom half with 4 wins, 1 draw, and 9 losses. The next year, Korchnoi won the 1947 USSR Junior Championship with 8 wins and 7 draws.|
In this game, perhaps 19...Rf7 is wrong. Black could try 19...c6 and if 20.Bc4, then 20...d5.
After 23.d6!, fxg4? looks like the losing move. Perhaps better is 23...Bxd6 and if 24.Bxf7+ Kxf7 and 25...Ne6.
|Jun-12-17|| ||tpstar: White to Play and Win after 20 ... Nf8.
Beautiful use of the Bishop pair and the pin motif.
