Probably a matter of taste. After 13...Qxf7 14.Nxf7 Kxf7, Black has three pieces for the queen;, in the game, White simply regains the sacrificed piece. In both cases White has two extra pawns. Korchnoi probably just felt that the second ending would be easier to convert.

Dec-31-10  Sem: <Phony Benoni> Oh, thanks. You know, this continuation seemed definitive to me, but of course I forgot that White would invest three officers in his march to eternal fame.
Feb-11-12  BlackSheep: The mentor had a real whooping from the pupil.
