  Chessical: Korchnoi's king penetrates Timman's queen-side and ends up victoriously on a1!

<10...f6> is a very interesting idea; Korchnoi plays the whole opening with imagination and aggression.

  gezafan: Korchnoi was murder with the French.
Apr-20-16  tigreton: It's surprising the easy way Korchnoi wins an endgame one pawn down, all due to the strengh, first of his knights, and later of his passed pawn, both on the d4-square.
