|Dec-04-05|| ||waddayaplay: Korchnoi just *has* to win -- and then this happens!|
|Dec-03-06|| ||jahhaj: Ian Rogers said about this game 'After this blunder Korchnoi was the nicest he's ever been to me after a loss. Sometimes he's a little cranky after a loss, but this time we just got down to analyse whether he'd missed a win (he hadn't)'.|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Calli: Much said about Kramnik's oversight, but here, Korchnoi does a helpmate. After 82...Kd6, can you see the helpmate in 3?

Instead of 84...Kc5??, 84...Ke5 85.Qh8+ f6 86.Qb8+ Qd6 is still okay.
|Dec-03-06|| ||jahhaj: After 84...Ke5 85.Qg5+ Kd6 86.Qd8+ is perpetual (85...f5?? 86 Qg7+ winning queen).|
|Dec-03-06|| ||Calli: According to CG, Ian Rodgers was 0-2 against Korchnoi before this game. I wonder what loss Rodgers was referring to.|
|Jan-09-08|| ||TigerG: I don't see what happened in this game.
|Jan-09-08|| ||xeneizexxx: why not 59...Rxe5 or 61...Rxe5 ?|
|Apr-30-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 84...Ke5 is a better try|

great respect by Korchnoi to GM Ian "The Hermit" Rogers!
|Sep-21-14|| ||waustad: I've seen "CBM 01" in the title of several different tournmants, but I haven't a clue what it stands for.|
|Sep-21-14|| ||perfidious: <waustad> ChessBase Magazine, I believe.|
|Sep-21-14|| ||Fusilli: <perfidious> <waustad> Actually, I suspect it stands for Biel Chess Masters (the open), as opposed to the GM tournament: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biel_c....|
I took a look at some of Korchnoi's games from the 1979 grandmaster tournament, which he won, and they all just say "Biel 1979"... So for now my guess is just Biel for the GM tournament, and BCM for the master's open.
|Sep-21-14|| ||perfessor: In MSMG, Evans quotes Korchnoi (paraphrasing): "I like to let my opponents taste the initiative so that they get carried away, sacrifice material, and lose." I guess that works both ways.|
|Sep-22-14|| ||waustad: Thanks. That could work for this one, since the company was founded in 1986, according to the WIKI listing.|
