  Chessdreamer: Correction. Oleg Kaminsky vs. Yakov Estrin, Soviet Union 1971.
Jun-27-14  zanzibar: <NOTE>: this is not the Korchnoi--Najdorf (R4) Hoogovens (1971) game, that would be here:

Korchnoi vs Najdorf, 1971

<CG> is a little confused (and shouldn't have two games with the same pairings for a RR tournament).

Not sure where this game is actually from, let me check against <MillBase>:

Kaminsky, Oleg M -- Estrin, Yakov (2330)
1971 1-0 D38g

Perhaps this game is this?

<CT> (ChessTempo) has it as this:

Kaminsky, Oleg M (2390) vs Estrin, Yakov (2330)
Date: 1971
Event: It (a), Wijk aan Zee NED 11/437
Round: 1
Result: 1-0
Opening: Queen's Gambit Declined, Ragozin Defense (D38)

<RUSbase> has it as follows:

Kaminsky Oleg M (USA) -- Estrin Yakov (RUS)
1-0 (29) D38 1971
Leningrad (Russia): Ch \"Trade Unions\" (?)

OK, that seals it.
