|Oct-02-06|| ||plang: This is one of my favorite Korchnoi games; possibly his best effort during the last stage of his career. He has always played well against the Kings Indian. The way he handles the initiative starting with 15 c5 is really impressive. 19 h4 is also a good move with the idea of Kh2 and Rh1 in some lines if black takes the N on g5 with a pawn. Korchnoi showed in his analysis that 23..Kh7 was no stronger and that white maintains his initiative after the R goes to c7. The piece sacrifice with 24 Bb3 is pretty. 31 h5 is a great finishing move; planning on operating against the weak h6 pawn and regaining the piece in all variations. I am surprised that this game has not received more attention. Kasparov included it in MGP volume 5. It was also voted the 3rd best game in Informant 69.|

The game also won the brilliancy prize for the best played game at the tournament. The 2 white bishops and 2 rooks working in tandem totally overwhelm Black's position.

Did anyone document Korchnoi's response? I imagine it went something like, "You are a complete bonehead for playing the KID against me, you don't know the first thing about chess, and you're fat."

I like chess played well, even if itís played well against me, perhaps even more so when itís played against me, because Iím a participant then. I said as much to him after the game and he took it rather well. I think he liked when people complimented him when he played chess well - which was often."

"Svidler in Chess24: 'He played a fantastic game against me. At one point, in a position which looked very promising for him, he paused for about an hour, looking for a forced solution. That obviously also gave me an hour to calculate things, and I spent the entire hour looking for something for him and couldnít find a forced win. I was just about beginning to think that I might survive it, and then he finally sort of woke up and blitzed out about a 10 -- move sequence which does win by force. A very unusual and a very beautiful sequence, and I said as much to him after the game. I like chess played well, even if itís played well against me, perhaps even more so when itís played against me, because Iím a participant then. I said as much to him after the game and he took it rather well. I think he liked when people complimented him when he played chess well -- which was often.'"
