  Benzol: Korchnoi's Chess Games by Levy & O'Connell says that Korchnoi did win this game and that his opponent was named Zuikov. Gamescore information after move 20 is not available, however.
Nov-13-04  yoozum: maybe because he was a pawn down, but the ending is totally playable.
Mar-02-06  vizir: yoozum> korchnoi was a pawn ahead :)
Aug-28-07  wolfmaster: I can imagine Korchnoi winning this position, but in at least 30 more moves.
Dec-16-08  blazerdoodle: A pawn down against Korch is enough.
Dec-09-10  Skakalec: <qqq:Why resign???>
