Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-11-04  Whitehat1963: Why on earth doesn't Korchnoi just simplify by taking the g4 pawn? Does he fear a perpetual check or something else I can't see?
Feb-25-06  bitko: Better exaple of Spassky's endgame tehique.

Applause. This endgame is not easy to won, especially against Victor.

Feb-25-06  euripides: <whitehat> you mean Spassky, I think. While the queen is on d7, Black's Rxg4 would allow Qxd7; Spassky keeps this option in reserve while he improves the position of his pieces. Once the king is on h4 he can play g5 and f6 and then take the pawn without losing one of his own. By 95 Qh1, however, he has bigger fish to fry; 95...Kxg4 96 Qg2+ would be slower than the game.
Jul-25-18  Inocencio: This is one of the best end game in chess!
