  tamar: This is like chess from a parallel universe.
Mar-15-04  AdrianP: I'd imagine Viktor's head was still spinning from this game when he agreed to a short draw with White in this one - Korchnoi vs Suttles, 1968 ...!
Mar-15-04  karnak64: You know what's really weird? Suttles playing 1. e4!
Mar-16-04  drukenknight: you wonder how much time each player had when those complications began. Shouldnt the pawn queen on move 28?
Jul-29-05  lentil: 28. f8Q+ Rxf8 29. Nxf8 Qxb1 30. Rxb1 31. Rxe3 leaves W 3 pawns down.
Feb-13-06  Kangaroo: If Korchnoi had found <39 ... Qh1+> the game would have been over before the move 40!
Sep-05-06  mack: <You know what's really weird? Suttles playing 1. e4! >

Not really. 1.e4 was his second favourite opening move as white (after 1.g3), and he played it around seventy times. In fact, Suttles' style was based around overprotecting the e-pawn; you always see it in his black games, and similarly as white d3, Nf2 and Bg2 - all centred on e4 - were very common.

Sep-14-06  Poisonpawns: Perhaps suttles should capture with the f pawn on move 13.Even though it is pinned
Jan-11-17  lentil: 9 h4?! Where did this idea come from?! (of course, 9. ... Bxh4?? 10 Qh5), but (I repeat)Where did this idea come from?!
