Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-05  Brown: An impressive, positional reverse dragon. Korchnoi keeps the pressure up with 22.e6!, but the sacrifice of the match is 25.Rg3!!, halting threats to his king while threatening the winning of a piece along with back rank mate.

28.cxb7! Good stuff.

Oct-14-05  colp99: It really is.
Oct-08-08  zoren: 25. Rg3 is a masterful defensive stroke, which had to be seen on move 22.
Oct-08-08  ksr: Korch might have seen it by move 19.Otherwise what was the purpose oh the Rook lift.I am sure Korch had no plans od doubling rooks as thr other rook remains out of play. Pressure on C file can be done from C1 square. Moving to a3 servers no purpose. So only possible destination square was g3 or h3.
Oct-12-08  DiscoJew: he say it at 18 with e5! a forceful move usually has a wise follow up. Great sicilian by white.

  perfidious: Incisive play by Korchnoi, featuring an elegant, long-foreseen retort which stifles Black's dreams of attack in 25.Rg3, at precisely the moment when Romanishin may have imagined he had got somewhere.
