Nov-02-09  AnalyzeThis: Korchnoi must have known what he was doing when he played 8....Ba5. It seems a little unusual. I know that Fischer played in a similar way against Spassky in the first game of their 1972 match.

  zydeco: Reshevsky's opening preparation for this match was really subpar. 10.Qe2 is a superficial move (Furman). Korchnoi immediately takes the initiative with 12....Bb6.

Furman calls 21.g4 "not so much an attack as a cry of despair."

Mar-16-15  RookFile: I'm sure you're right. To a hacker like me, it sure looks like after 12. Nd4 black can look forward to pain and suffering, with a blockaded d pawn. I guess one point is that after 12....Bb6! white can't play Nce2 with the queen already on e2.
