  TheAlchemist: Even then, he was already "Terrible"
Jun-17-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Korchnoi played this when he was 19.> I hope this wasn't ment as an alibi - chessplayers were even 50 years ago fully developed at that age.

<TheAlchemist> correctly put this game i found in his collection of the worst games ever.

Jun-17-05  50 Quatloos Newcomer: Pretty sloppy--wasn't he already playing in the annual USSR championship at this point?

  Jim Bartle: Since it ended one move short of the time control, Korchnoi was likely trying to reach the control any way he could. Just a guess.
Apr-19-06  AlexandraThess: Great defence by Kasparian.He's given a nice lesson to the young Korchnoi.
