  Honza Cervenka: 27...Qe7 looks like a better defence but white should have won there too, for example 28.Bf5+! Kf8 29.Qf4! Ke8 (29...exf5 30.Qxh6+ Ke8 31.Bxf6 ) 30.Bxe6! fxe6 31.Bxf6 Qf7 32.Qg4 (Of course, not 32.Rxe6+?? Qxe6 ) 32...Rd6 33.Nf5 Rcd8 34.Nxd6+ Rxd6 35.Bd4 etc.
Apr-23-08  Tomlinsky: Kasimdzhanov always speaks highly of Korchnoi, a prized possesion in his youth was a compendium of VK's games bought for him by his sister.

In relation to the end of this game he relates: "Here the ruler of the black pieces said "You won" and stood up from the table. A second later I heard, not for the first time in my life, the ominous words "But still he can't play chess". And for all I know, he might be right."
