How about 26. Bxh7+ Kxh7 27. Rh3+ Kg8 28. Rxg7+ Kxg7 29. Qg4+ Kf7 30. Rh7+ Ke8 31. Qg6+ Kd8 32. Qg5+, is it forced enough?

  Ron: Play could go 26. Bxh7+ Kf7 27. Rxg7+ Ke8 28. Rf1 Rc7 29. Qh5+ Rcf7 30. Bg8 Kd8 31. Bxf7 Kc7 32. Bxe6+ Kb8 33. Bxd5

with huge material advantage for Korchnoi. I inputted alternate Black moves in the above line, and these alternate moves are even worse for Black. Would not be a bad puzzle.
