  Honza Cervenka: Young Korchnoi tried King's gambit against Borisenko but was outplayed. I don't understand his 32.Nc4 losing a piece but the game was already lost.
Jul-17-09  jerseybob: After 31..Re3 black threatens to win the exchange. Instead of just losing prosaically with say 32.Nb1,Kg7 Korchnoi pitched the piece looking for a cheapo.
Jan-07-12  King Death: White's 9th move gains time but gives up some light squares and he pays the price down the road. With 20...Nb8 Borisenko starts a regrouping to put the knight at d5 and leave White with a miserable dark squared bishop. Just when White looks like he'll get some play, 25...Rd5 is a rude awakening that returns the pawn but forces him into a bad ending. Once Black gets control of the e file, even the weakness of his kingside pawns doesn't matter anymore. His pieces are too active.
