  Jim Bartle: 41. fxg6 ep may be slightly better.

May-28-17  Granny O Doul: Odd moment for the game to end. If White offered, you'd think Black would have said "make your move and I'll think about it". But if Korchnoi was in his usually time pressure, it's hard to imagine he'd have had the composure to say "with this move, I offer a draw" on the last move of time control.

At first glance, if 16...Bc4 <17. Qe4> looks strong, pinning the knight on c6 and threatening b3 next.
