Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-23-04  Poisonpawns: Dutch players should know this system! and prepare, nice game by Lombardy
Nov-23-04  TheSlid: Does Viktor press too hard with moves like 26.c6 and 31.f5?

Was a draw no use at this stage of the tournament?

Dec-01-04  Poisonpawns: A Lugovoi vs Zhong Zhang, 2004 is a great modern (2004) example of how to play the dutch as black agaist early f3
Dec-04-04  Poisonpawns: I think 28.Nxf5 by Korchnoi is too ambitious sacrificing a pice for two passed pawns that wind up getting blocked. Maybe 28.Kb3 with the idea of a4 works here,white is a bit better but must slowly increase the advantage, not rush it.
Dec-06-15  Albanius: Korchnoi apparently missed 32..Bg6 shmeckchuck!

  gregory2188: Don't ever give up a pair of bishops. - GM Lombardy 3 days ago. Learned my lesson in our game, so was here. Thanks Sir FSR.
Oct-17-17  chessfilmmaker: Korchnoi was down on time. Lombardy explained in his autobiography that he was "gonna pull a Karpov on Korchnoi." I guess, this is what he meant by that.
Dec-04-18  Ironmanth: Like this game; mistakes or miscalculations on both sides?!
