  Honza Cervenka: Black had to be very happy with draw by repetition. Instead of 41.Qd1 white could have played 41.h5 with huge advantage. For example, 41.h5 gxh5 42.Bxh5 Rc8 43.Bg6 Bh6 44.Qxh6 Qxh6 45.gxh6 hxg6 46.Nb7 Rxc1 47.Bxc1 Nb6 48.Nxd6 Kg8 49.Bb2 Kh7 50.Bxe5 Kxh6 51.Bd4 with decisive advantage.
Mar-24-18  ewan14: Victor really going for it

playing something different again versus the K.I.D.

Mar-24-18  kingfu: I am surprised Viktor missed 41.h5. He was The Killer of the King's Indian, scoring +128 in 266 KID games.

Viktor the Terrible actually got in a vanquished opponents face with, "You played The King's Indian against ME??"

Mar-25-18  Granny O Doul: I'll guess Korchnoi had been in his usual time trouble and maybe wasn't sure they were past control. A lot of top players have blundered into draws by repetition, though this was a more obvious case than most.
