  zydeco: Good game by Rossetto! It's hard making Korchnoi look bad like this. 35.Bb4! starting an attack; 38.Re7+! winning an exchange or a piece.

Probably it's Korchnoi's pawn-grabbing habit that gets him in trouble. There isn't an obvious alternative to 22.....f5 but 29.....Bxh4 seems really dangerous (instead 29....Be7 sets up a blockade and keeps the white rook off d6).

23....Qb6 might have been worth a try. If 24.Rd7 Re7.
