this game was featured in the book "How Good is Your Chess" by GM Daniel King on page 122. In the book, King described GM Eugenio Torre as one of the strongest players in Asia at that time.

Mar-06-10  paul1959: Torre was the first Asian GM if I am not mistaken. Here he play too passively. 6 Bc4 is book and White will play as in the Spanish exchange: Try to get rid of most pieces and win the ending. Black does not have the advantage of the two bishops so White is thought to be slightly better.

17. Na5 is probably the losing move but Black looks better at that point anyway. Even if White gets three pawns for the piece , Black is too active. Great game by Korchnoi!
