Korchnoi "Chess is my Life"

"Early in 1968 I went off to play in Holland aat the Wijk aan Zee Tournament. This was the first time for many years that I had been to an international tournament in a capitalist country. Such tournaments, where the prizes are in convertible currency, are especially valued, and only the top grandmasters gain the opportunity to play in them. The conditions were unusual for me, in that there were two adjournment sessions a day. On the whole I tend to have lots of adjourned games, and here at the very start I adjourned against Padevski, a game which was to continue almost to move 100, and each day I found myself working nine hours, not including preparations for the following round. What are trade unions for in this enlightened twentieth century? On round gave way to another, and all the time I was playing on the same adjourned game, winning each new encounter on the way! The situation cleared up after a week, when I had scored 7 out of 7. The eighth game was with Tal. Away from the board we were on friendly terms, and the tournament was going indifferently for him, but we had to make a game of it, especially since everyone around expected us to agree to a quick draw. Tal played the first part of the game accurately, and gained approximate equality, but then made a mistake. I managed to open up the position to my advantage, and win the game. It was only on the following day that I had my first draw, with Donner.

In this series of seven wins there were several good games. Before this, in the Interzonal, I had played badly against the Yugoslavs, scoring only one point out of four. Here I gained my revenge, winning against Ivkov, Matanovic, Ciric and Karakajic. I consider my game with Matanovic (game 45) to be one of the best achievements in my life in the field of chess strategy. With 10 1/2 points (p.59) out of 11, I was heading for a new record in the tournament, but in round twelve, with the better position against Portisch, I blundered away a piece. The tournament lost interest for me, and I drew the remaining three games without a fight. Even so, it wasn't too bad: I had scored 12 points out of 15, three points ahead of Tal, Portisch and Hort.(p.60)"

Mikhail Tal (Life and Games)

"The following year, 1968, brought me few laurels, and it all started in January, at the traditional tournament at Wijk aan Zee. I played there with Korchnoi, and the Leningrad player once again set a furious pace, scoring 6.5 out of 7 at the start. From my first games I felt that I had neither the enthusiasm, nor the right sort of mood, for chess.

From the whole tournament there were only two games that I could boast about. The game against Donner is given here in this book, and this is the other (Rossolimo).

This tournament was my last test before the start of the Candidates matches, and showed that, to put it mildly I was not in my best form. This was also confirmed by the start of my match with Gligoric." (339) Rossolimo game diagram on (340)

Hilary Thomas "Complete Games 1967-1973"

"Tal's first visit to the annual tournament in Holland sponsored by the Hoogoven Steel company was also part of his 'warming-up' for the 1968 series of world championship candidate matches. He was dissatisfied with his play and intensified his preparations for the coming encounter with Gligoic." (19)

Tim Krabbe:

Een der deelnemers aan het thans bijna beeindigde Hoogoven-schaaktoernooi, een deelnemer aan de belangrijkste groep, die der grrotmeesters nog wel, beklaagde zich na enkele ronden in een interview over het feit dat hij op het ogenblik zo veel zwakker schaakte dan een jaar of vijf geleden.

"Ik heb mijn oude kracht niet meer" zei hij. Het zal de lezer weinig moeite kosten te raden wie die klager was; Viktor Kortsjnoi natuurlijk. Toen de Rus zijn uitspraak deed voerde hij de ranglijst aan met 6 uit 6, op het ogenblik dat ik dit schrijf doet hij dat met 9 1/2 uit 10. En wanneer u dit leest doet hij het ongetwijfeld nog, al is het ons niet gegeven reeds nu te weten met hoeveel-en-een-half uit 13 dat zal zijn.

En toch ben ik er van overtuigd dat Korchnoi's vreemd aan-doende opmerking niet gerangschikt dient dient te worden onder het zelfbeklag dat even onverbrekelijk bij schakers hoort als pionnen, paarden, en de Mannheimervariant van het Aangenomen Dame-gambiet. Evenmin lijkt KOrchnoi er des te meer bewondering voor zijn ongelofelijke prestatie mee te willen oproepen. ("Ach ja, met dat schijntje van mezelf dat ik nu nog maar ben, hak ik ze er ook allemaal wel af.") Als je hem ziet zitten, geloof je in zijn eerlijkheid. Hij is een stoere, stevige man, maar als je even niet kijkt, ben je zijn gezicht alweer vergeten.

Nee, dan Donner, die ondertussen al meer in de publiciteit moet zijn geweest dan ex-wereldkampioen Euwe. Met Donner gaat het in dit toernooi alweer niet zo best. Na zijn fraaie zege in de eerste ronde op Portisch heeft hij geen partij meer gewonnen, maar er wel twee verloren. De aandacht richtte hij pas weer op zich, toen hij in de 9e ronde de eerste was die Korchnoi op remisie hield. "Zo ver is het nu al met me gekomen," gromde Donner na afloop, "ze feliciteren me nu al als ik remise speel." Maar wat zijn nu eigenlijk Donners uitschieters? Zijn dat Zierikzee 1967, IBM 1967, Havanna 1967, Palma 1967 en Hoogovens 1968? Of is het toch het door hem gewonnn grootmeester toernooi te Venetie? Wil dat laatste niet het geval zijn, dan zal Donner toch weer spoedig een ware grootmeester-prestatie moeten afleveren.

One of the participants in the now almost discontinued Blast-chess tournament, a participant in the main group, that of grrotmeesters still, complained after a few laps in an interview about the fact that he is so much weaker at the moment abducted than five years ago.

"I have my old power anymore" he said. It will advise the reader little effort who the complainant; Viktor Kortsjnoi course. When the Russian his statement did he headed the list with 6 out of 6, at the moment I write this he does with 9 1/2 out of 10. And when you read it does undoubtedly, though it is not us already given to know now how many and one-half of 13 that will be.

And yet I am convinced that Korchnoi's strange-duty remark should not ranked to be among the self-pity that belongs as inseparable as chess pawns, horses, and Mannheimervariant the assumed Dame gambit. Nor Korchnoi seems to want it all the more calls admiration for his incredible performance with. ("Oh yes, with that pittance of myself that I now only am I chop them all well off.") If you see him sitting, your faith in his honesty. He's a tough, sturdy man, but if you look just not, you've already forgotten his face.

No, Donner, who meanwhile must have been more publicity than former world champion Euwe. With Donner goes in this tournament again not so good. After his splendid victory in the first round on Portisch he has won a lot, but there two lost. The attention he founded again only on himself, when he was the first in the 9th round Korchnoi stopped remisie. "So far it's already come with me," Donner growled after, "they all congratulate me when I play a draw." But what are actually Donners outliers? That Zierikzee 1967, IBM 1967, Havana 1967, Palma de Mallorca in 1967 and Hoogovens 1968? Or is it the gewonnn he grandmaster tournament in Venice? Would the latter is not the case, Donner will yet again soon must deliver a true master achievement.
