Jan-18-11  bronkenstein: Another forgotten dusty jewl :) Fine midgame manouvering by Kortchnoi , and then tactical firework in the end . Real Reti style (having Polugaevsky on the other side of the board !)
May-05-12  iamdeafzed: 41.)Bf8+, Kh7 (Kh8, Ba3+)
42.)Rd7+, Kh8
43.)Bg7+, Kh7
44.)Bxf6+

looks decisive for white, and there might even be better.

Jan-09-15  SpiritedReposte: 20. Nd5! is an optical illusion.
Jan-09-15  Nerwal: This game is featured in Korchnoi's book on his "best" games as White. 7. ♗e3 is a great concept (and new at the time), typical of Korchnoi's talent as an opening analyst. Amazing how quickly Black got a bad position thereafter in this supposedly solid Lasker setup.
