  Gypsy: Boleslavsky can make it look so easy...
Sep-27-10  jerseybob: This is something Korchnoi often did with white in the 1960's: setting up an overextended formation, sometimes coupled with castling q-side, and it several times backfired(see his 1968 Spassky match for example). In the 1970s he became a sounder player with white and it showed in steadier results. Boleslavsky's refutation here is a gem.
Sep-27-16  uzumakinaruto: is a tactical game developed in sharp so both Korchnoi you save if to 39. 1. Rxd6 QC7 2. Rd2 axb3, interesting and instructive
