Oct-29-06  MadBishop: Gheorghiu was so far out of his league its not even funny. An entertaining game nonetheless! On move 17. ... Rab8 was better. 23. ... Rbd8? Was obviously the losing move. Better would have been 23. ... Qc7 24. Nxf7 Rxf7 25. Qe3 (the idea being 26. Qe7 or 26.Qxa7). 24.Nxf7 followed later by 27.Re7 was pure genius on the part of Korchnoi.
Apr-30-10  timothee3331: This game shows very interesting features:
18.Bxf6! which considers that playing against the blockade is the most important 19.d5! and 20.Bxd5!! a very strong move! Normally you take with the knight and remain with the bishop but in some cases it's better to keep the knight with IQP positions, and it has become a classical method of play Then the active play which is typical after the d5 exchange Bb3 Nb5 Nd6 and then the typical Nxf7 combination in IQP positions where the white pieces are generally so well placed that it works often !
