May-11-05  notyetagm: This plan by Korchnoi, trading off all the knights to kill the White kingside attack, works quite effectively. Note that this match was played shortly after Spassky wiped out Geller using the Closed Siciian in their match (+3 =1 -0 in those games).

  zydeco: Reshevsky very rarely played 1.e4. With the Closed Sicilian, he was following Spassky's scheme against Geller.

13....Ne8 is a saner defense than Geller's 13....Bb7.

22.Qe2 is too cautious (Furman). White had chances of an attack with 22.g4.

Mucho más interesante 26 b3!
