Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-13-07  Jinete Arquero: Maybe I'm the first one to watch this game, only because I was looking for games with modern defense ^^

Correct me if wrong, but why not 98. ... Ne7 and wins?

Nov-13-07  Jinete Arquero: Oh wait a second, hxg8 then and queens, I'm very sorry ^^
Aug-24-08  4tmac: White had a win with 82.Qg8 (it seems pretty obvious, too) After 82. ... Ne7! the win was gone. (82. Ke4 won as well but with more difficulty than the simple Qg8)
Sep-15-09  WhiteRook48: disappointment for Korchnoi
Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: The win by 82.Ke4 instead of the actually played 82.Kf4 must have been particularly irritating to Korchnoi, if he ever bothered to look for it and find it. Not that it takes much to irritate Korchnoi.
Apr-15-16  Howard: Well put, that last sentence !
