35.Bxb5 .. would probably have given Korchnoi an unshared tournament win.

Jul-06-14  zydeco: Korchnoi was a pawn-grabber. Interesting that he passed up the opportunity -- and tried to be too subtle. Either that, or he was really in terrible time-trouble and wanted to make a few non-committal moves.
Feb-15-15  sonia91: At Zurich Chess Challenge Korchnoi still remembers this game:

< 'I have prepared to the Grunfeld', Korchnoi told Genna Sosonko confidentially. As you already know he will play a rapid match against Wolfgang Uhlmann here in Zurich on February 15th and 16th. 'Why exactly the Grunfeld?', Sosonko wondered. The answer was puzzling even to Genna who has been keeping in touch with Korchnoi for decades. 'He always plays the King's Indian', Victor Lvovich explained. 'But in the last round of Buenos Aires in 1960, he suddenly decided to surprise me with the Grunfeld. I failed to win that game and was eventually tied for the first place instead of taking the clear first. How can I be sure he won't do this again? I have to stay on the alert..."

If Uhlmann remembers the events happened 55 years ago, I wonder. Is he having in mind as much as one tenth of Korchnoi's suspicions?.. >

Feb-15-15  Strelets: <sonia91> "What's this blitz about?" says Korchnoi, one of the best blitz players in the world for many years.
Sep-14-15  justwatcher: A crystal-clear equality!...
