|Jul-02-15|| ||Howard: According to the Informant, Portisch missed a win in this game but I don't recall exactly where.|
By the way.....there's an interesting story about this game---has to do with the Korchnoi-Polugaevsky match.
Anyone know what it was ?
|Jul-02-15|| ||whiteshark: <Howard> Are you sure it's this game and not the final game Huebner vs Portisch, 1980 ? There Portisch's seconds made him play <43... a3?> after resumption of the adjourned game.|
|Nov-16-15|| ||happyjuggler0: <Howard> From Korchnoi - Polugaevsky Candidates Semifinal (1980) :|
<In game 14, Korchnoi dropped a bombshell 8...Ne6 on Polugaevsky. He floundered badly, spent too much time, and lost a piece on move 31 while in severe time trouble.13 The move 8...Ne6 was not exactly new, but had been played ten days before in Italy in the other semifinal (Huebner vs Portisch, 1980). The Dane Bent Larsen worked there as a commentator, and had sent an analysis to Clarín, but Polugaevsky's camp had failed to read it. "That's for not reading Clarín!", Larsen said.>
|Jan-22-16|| ||Howard: Looked at Informant 30 last night, and Portisch did indeed miss a win. Remind me to look at it again tonight.|
|Jun-13-18|| ||Howard: It's over two years "late", but according to the Informant, Portisch would have won had he played 34...Nh7!|
|Jun-13-18|| ||lost in space: The most complicated move are once with knight backwards.|
|Jun-13-18|| ||ChessHigherCat: White has an insane advance in development by move 14 but black manages to neutralize it over the next few moves and then even gains an advantage.|
|Jun-18-18|| ||Howard: Whether White's lead in development is really "insane by move 14" is debatable. Granted, he has three pieces in play as opposed to just one by Black, but...|
...White's king is awkwardly placed on f1, so getting the KR into play will take at least two moves. Plus, Black has already castled, which further cuts White's "advance in development."
