Apr-19-17  ughaibu: I advise you to work on your ability to believe facts. The fact in question strikes me as having no noticeable unbelievability.
Apr-19-17  cunctatorg: I guess that it's not practically feasible for "mere mortals" to study (and analyze) all Korchnoi's masterpieces, not even with the help of their silicon ... "seconds"...

To put it simply and honestly, an immense heritage!!...

Apr-19-17  ughaibu: If there are facts, then at least some of them can be believed. There are facts, so at least some facts can be believed.

The above is a fact, and can be believed.

The above is a fact, and can be believed.

Et cetera. Thereby we have established that there is at least a countable infinity of believable facts.

Apr-22-17  Mendrys: Nice positional game by Korchnoi. I think Averbakh should have kept his rook on the board with 27. Rb1 instead of the text move. With his rook gone his bishop's weakness was magnified.

34...Bxe6 was a nice move as 34...fxe6 would also have been winning but after 35. f6 white still has some counterplay with the ability to queen his pawn. 34...Bxe6 precludes this opportunity.

"I can't believe..." is an idiomatic expression showing surprise and should rarely be taken literally, e.g. "I can't believe that I just got a speeding ticket for going 40 in a 35 mph zone." or "That steak last night was unbelievably good!"
