  zydeco: Impressive positional squeeze by Korchnoi - black's position keeps steadily improving. 47....Rxb2?? is impossible because of 48.Nd4+.
Feb-27-18  Adenosina: Korchnoi himself said in a interview that this game was definitely one of his best 5 games ever.

To be honest, it is a real pleasure to go through this game. Korchnoi proves that the activity of his pieces compensate the weakness of the d5-pawn. Nonetheless, the position after 49. Ng1 shows the stunning positional masterclass that Korchnoi gave to his opponent.
