  Zenchess: OK, why didn't Black play 11...cxb2, forking Rook and Bishop?

  muwatalli: 11... cxb2 12. Bxb2 Qxb2 13. Qd5 and white forks a8 f7 and c5 all at once. and if not Qxb2 then white is just much better with his two powerful bishops. i suppose after 13 Qd5 Bxf2+ 14 Kxf2 qf6+ 15. kg1 qc6 Qxc6 is possible, but black would be fighting for the draw then, which surely isn't what korchnoi wanted.

  haydn20: Actually, after 15. Qc6 Qe5+, Black can resign.
Sep-11-11  Amateurd4: 6. Nxe5 ... any justification ??
