Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-04  ughaibu: As it turns out Smyslov had a 5-3 plus score against Korchnoi (in this database), as Smyslov is such a renowned endgame expert and positional specialist I was surprised that the three shortest wins were Smyslov's but then, so were the two longest.

  Honza Cervenka: 44...gxh5 45.Rf3 Rd7 46.Rxf5 Rf7 47.Rf4 and black has nothing to play. Fine game of Smyslov.
Nov-21-18  tigreton: Beautiful game. I like the manoeuvre 29. Qe3 followed by Qe5, to redeploy these pieces along the diagonal, making the Queen's invasión decisive.
Nov-21-18  Howard: One of the last games that Korchnoi played on Soviet soil.
Nov-21-18  ZonszeinP: When Smyslov was "hungry" of chess...
Was unstoppable
