  twinlark: Nice game by Korchnoi. Good analysis.
Jul-29-10  kurtrichards: <Korchnoi and Uhlmann> are both French Defense practitioners. They met at Skopje Olympiad in '72 and ended up playing the English Opening which Uhlmann lost. :)

  whiteshark: <kurt> Uhlmann was not the kind of guy you'd call an "1.e4 player". :D

  kdogphs: 39% of Korchnoi's moves were queen moves. A 1200 like yours truly could not get away with playing a game like this, getting his queen into the action early and getting away with it! Korchnoi was without a doubt one of the most creative players in chess history.
