Jun-28-06  mccarthpm: boris always said the roy lopez was a forced win for white but not here
Oct-07-09  Pravitel: Here we first see the attractive Ba7 which Karpov later used against Unzicker to a great effect.
Dec-25-17  Toribio3: Boris was already not at his best during those times. Every champion will fade the way it used to be. This is the cycle of life.
