  Chessical: <20...gxf6!> seems to win immediately for Black

<21. gxf7+> Kh8 22. Qg8+ Rxg8+ 23. fxg8=Q+ Qxg8+ 24.Bxg8 Bc5+ 25. Kg2 Rg5+ 26. Kf3 Kxg8; and wins

<21. gxh7+> Kxh7 22. Be4+ Kh8; is no better for White.

Jun-26-12  Nova: What an amazing game by Korchnoi! I loved the positional pawn sac of 16...d3! to clog-up the queenside, and then the tactical insight of 22...Qxf6!, where after black wins the rook on f6, the white queen is useless against the coordinated black pieces. Marvelous display of positional understanding by Korchnoi against a brute force white attack! I wonder why others have not kibitzed on this game?
Jun-26-12  DanielBryant: I liked 10...d5, based on the tactical point 11.Bxd5 Bxf5.
Jun-13-16  cunctatorg: Korchnoi himself wrote about this very game!...

See GM Grigory Serper's article: "Korchnoi, the chess psychologist" which includes an extremely interesting (and also revealing about Korchnoi's personality) text by Korchnoi himself!!...

Dec-14-16  Pyrandus: "About this very game"?
