Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-22-04  Cecil Brown: "The young Korchnoi had a rather strange nature. In Leningrad 1957 he came to the railway station for the sole purpose of seeing off the only player to defeat him in the friendly match between the two countries ( USSR vs Yugoslavia ), i.e. to say goodbye and tell me that we were going to meet again and that he would have his revenge."

From "I play against pieces" by Svetozar Gligoric.

Jan-29-12  screwdriver: I'm a bit surprised that Korchnoi lost this game. I guess Gligoric was more of a veteran at this point.
