  Honza Cervenka: Nice game, but Sznapik probably in time pressure missed much more convincing winning shot 40...Bd4!! threatening 41...e2+ 42.Kg2 Rf2+ 43.Kg1 Rhh2 etc.
Mar-13-03  drukenknight: korchnoi looks a little over anxious: 28 e5 was probably a little better.

maybe he was still upset by missing a few moves earlier. Was 25 Rxe4 better?

  Honza Cervenka: Do you mean 25.Rxf4? If so, then what about 25...Nxf4 26.Nh6+ Kg7 27.Nxf7 Nxe2+ 28.Bxe2 Rxf7?
