Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-18-05  Brown: This game is nuts. 13.Rc1! is a nice in-betweener (13...Bxd4 14.Nb5+) and Rxc6+ takes nice advantage of the pinned knight.

If black plays 27...Rxa4 then 28.Rd5+ Kc4 <...Ke3 29.Rd3#> 29.b3+

Black's got nowhere to go at the end. Great game by Korchnoi, after a wild opening.

Mar-22-06  zev22407: Pining and unpining.
Whith a deadly pin on the long fiagnal.
Jan-23-07  Octavia: i've just discovered that <takking> has most of the games of Neil Mcdonald: Chess the art of Logical Thinking (26/30)
Jan-24-07  Octavia: <takking> 29 Kf2 is the move - hope you can change it.
Jan-01-08  Ulhumbrus: On 15...Kxc6 16 Na4 regains the piece.
Jun-01-13  marandreo: Octavia's right - 29th white move was Kf2 (not Kf1), as reported in magazines of that time.
