Nov-04-04  Minor Piece Activity: Nice game nikolaas. What is the palace of pioneers?
Nov-05-04  Eatman: Pioneers was the Soviet Youth organisation. Think of Boy/Girl Scouts , except everyone had to join from grades 3 to 7 and wear those silly red scarves. Most big cities had Pioneer Palaces, those contained clubs for all kind of activities including chess. This game comes from a simul visiting Korchnoi gave to young 12 year old pioneer Garry.
Nov-05-04  Minor Piece Activity: Thanks for the history lesson Eatman! Wow, imagine giving a simul to Kasparov!

  ray keene: <offramp> sadly not-not at chess anyway-the only game i beat korchnoi consistently at was bridge and that was only because i kept on getting mega hands but bid very cautiously.

by the way-your calais to vladivostock railway-i presume the 3 stops are in addition to the basic journey time.

i cant believe that kasparov didnt crush korchnoi from this opening-whites play was awful.

Nov-05-04  Griffin: As soon as White played g4 I stopped viewing the game in disgust.

  offramp: <ray keene: <offramp> sadly not-not at chess> I did have a vague recollection that you and Bill Hartston had beaten the 2 Ks in a hand of bridge - that was what I was thinking of.

The three stops are St. Omer - Hazebrouck - Birobidzhan.

  Sneaky: Bridge, now there's a game which is totally over my head. Funny story, though... offramp had me going for a while.
Nov-05-04  nikolaas: Bride is not as good as Whist. Color Whist (Klerurenwiezen) is, after Life an Chess the best game I know.
Aug-15-09  UnicornChessman: I've never fully understood how top-level players can manage to play so awefully as this... Apparantly the trick to becoming a world champ is to throw poo at each other while giggling like a little girl, haha.

  HeMateMe: korchnoi must have been wondering, if a 14 year old is doing this, will I be near the top much longer?
Mar-07-13  Chessbing: haha, i'm only twenty and i'm going to the world open this year. yes!!!=D
Nov-14-13  QueentakesKing: Kas at a very young age was already exhibiting an inclination to sacrifice.
Mar-02-14  MrJafari: Both players were good and that created a near game,but not so interesting for me,although instructive!
