  plang: White's moves aren't that hard to find after his piece sacrifice 18 Nc5. 23..Bh3 and 24..Bf1 are totally illogical as black has to return all the sacrificed material after 26 d7 anyway. I am a little surprised that Korchnoi included this game in his book as one of his 50 games with white. In his long and illustrious career I'm sure he had many more competitive and interesting struggles than this one.
Apr-07-07  KingG: Well, Kasparov also selected this game in his book OMGP V. Maybe the game is a bit one sided, but it's still very nice, and i found it to be quite instructive. Whenever my opponents play ...c5 in this variation, i always now go for the piece sac. So far i have always won after playing it, i guess because the resulting positions aren't that easy to defend.

Tough crowd! :-)

Aug-21-08  computer chess guy: 24. ♔h1! deserves mention - it is maybe not difficult to see he will get his material back, but IMO not obvious that this is also the most efficient way to win.
