Oct-31-05  hayton3: Nice endgame by Korchnoi. I like the way he delays exchanging queens until he achieves an optimum positioning of his pawns in the ensuing bishops of the same colour ending.
Nov-01-05  Averageguy: Very instructive, I find it nice how he ties dow the opponents bishop to a place where it can't move, and then attacks the b-pawn more times then it can be defended. Also neat is how he doesn't allow the white king to invade by making that kind of "wall" with his bishop and pawns. A good example of the power of a good bishop over a bad one. Thanks hayton3 for finding this one!
Nov-20-05  aw1988: Tal has a horrible score against Korchnoi.
