Jun-08-11  YoGoSuN: Did Black really play 57. Qg6?? And did White really play 58. Qd8?? I think the score is wrong. 57. Kg6 makes a lot more sense.
Feb-23-14  zydeco: 86.Qg2! ruins Filip's chances for a perpetual check. If 86.....Qxd4 87.Qg6#. If 86.....Qxf5 87.Rh4#.

If Black played 57...Kg6, that makes Black's move 58...Qf6 illegal because Black's Queen is already on that square. If anybody can suggest moves which don't render other moves illegal, CG can make the correction.

  dernier loup de T: Maybe 57...Kg6 58.Qd8 Kh7 59. Re5 Kg6 was the played sequence? We would reach then the same position but after more plausible moves...

  dernier loup de T: Correction, sorry, Sargon: it would be 57...Kg6 58.Qd8 Kg7 (not ...Kh7) 59.Re5 Kh7...

  dernier loup de T: After 86. Qg2!, its really a masterpiece of engame by Kortchnoy, more convincing than the famous 31th game of his first world-championship match against Karpov (1978)....
Dec-04-15  RookFile: Korchnoi didn't exactly refute the Cambridge Springs defense with his opening play. Filip had a good position out of the opening.
