|Aug-04-02|| ||bishop: The white queen bishop was bottled up, this contributed in not a small way to Black's victory. |
|Jul-01-14|| ||KingG: Very nice attack.|

|Aug-14-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: Gorgeous! A hidden gem for sure.|
|Apr-07-16|| ||ToTheDeath: Outstanding game. Simagin loved his bishops.|
|Apr-16-17|| ||Toribio3: Bravo Simagin, you are one of the best grandmaster.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||bubuli55: Very impressive.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||eykca: 23! jezus... I used to ski when I was younger. A yard sale is a crash so hard you lose all your gear. Black seems to yardsale this whole game but damn, 23...|
|Jun-27-17|| ||bubuli55: Simagin all the people living life in peace|

|Jun-27-17|| ||kevin86: The rook sac diverts the white rook and allows the queen and bishop to mate on the bias.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||scholes: After 29 gxf3 checkmate is forced.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||Once: Very impressive game. The opening is one of my favourites from a black perspective. We get to play Bb4, b6/ Bb7, Ne4 and f5. That feels like one of those mashups or charity record where great bands play together.|
Except instead of Live Aid, we've got a mix of the Nimzo Indian, the Queen's Indian and the Dutch. That's like Freddie Mercury on vocals, Santana on lead guitar, Paul McCartney on bass and Keith Moon on drums.
Or maybe a better analogy would be a four seasons pizza. Perfect for those of us who can't decide which topping to have. Have them all!

Generally speaking I find these of how-should-the-winner-force-mate discussions not worth the trouble.
In this case after either 33....Rf1+/Rf2 34.QxR Bxe4+ and mate next move.
After 33....Rf2 White can, if for some reason he wants to, play 34.Qg1, after which either 34....Qh4+ or ...Bxe4+ forces mate next move. 33....Rf1+ prevents that possibility, so I guess you could say it was more forcing.
33....Rf2 is the move I saw immediately when I played through the game. This is probably not in ...Rf2's favor.
|Jun-27-17|| ||Strelets: A clear, clean attack caused this bump in the road to the first of four Soviet chess championships for Viktor Korchnoi. Think about it: the guy won four Soviet championships before he was even at the peak of his career. Crazy.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||schnarre: ...Very good use of connecting pieces--especially the knight pair & light-squared bishop. Black seems to virtually waltz over White's Kingside from move 20 onwards.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||kelu: @keypusher what I like with 33... Rf2 is that it let your opponent 1 move to understand how hopless is the position (with Rf1+ you just take thr rook). A lot of move are possible but none can save. It is sadistic. I would hate someone to play it against me.|
|Jun-27-17|| ||ColeTrane: Right. Now Our turn to win a pun...the Royal, editorial "We"|
|Jun-27-17|| ||morfishine: Simagin just rips him to pieces, one move after the other|
Hold it, "him" is none other than Viktor Korchnoi
Holy smokes, I need to say 3 Hail Mary's
Wait, I'm not Catholic
I better say them anyways lol
|Aug-09-17|| ||Saniyat24: 23...Nf2!|
|Aug-09-17|| ||RookFile: Korchnoi's pawns on a4, b5, and c6 were pretty but that's a lot of moves to spend on something without a result - meanwhile black had a terrific kingside attack going.|
