  offramp: 16...Kd7! Great move, to let the queen go to g8. The king seems happier in the centre. You have to be really confident and on-form to play moves like that!
Sep-23-07  syracrophy: A possible pun: "Eye Filguth"
Jun-25-08  Xeroxx: I dont think that the white player filguth about this game.

  Garech: What a game from Korchnoi! I was hoping to learn alternatives to the mainline Tarrasch French and came across this beauty ... will try and think of a pun now.

Cheers,
