Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-31-16  Howard: Very costly loss for Ribli---by losing, he ended up in a playoff with Adjoran (sp) for the third Candidates spot.

A draw, on the other hand, probably would have given him clear third.

Aug-09-16  tigreton: Strange move, 9. fg3, weakening the pawn structure, but in the end the opening of the f-file worked.
May-24-17  cunctatorg: 16. dc5 (!?!) seems to me a quite intriguing move, as far as I can't anticipate White's play after 16... fxe4. However Black's position would be full of holes but...
May-24-17  Howard: Talk about a coincidence! I just looked this game up the other night in a 1979 issue of British Chess Magazine !

Yes, the magazine highly praised 16.dxc5!

  perfidious: <Howard....A draw, on the other hand, probably would have given (Ribli) clear third.>

He would certainly have qualified; as it was, Adorjan only made the playoff by winning with Black from Miles in this last round.

Dec-15-17  Howard: Yes, it appears that you're right--if Ribli had drawn in the last round, it would have guaranteed him a Candidates spot. So, for me to say "probably" was incorrect. Thanks for pointing that out.
