Dec-18-05  suenteus po 147: 28.a4 is what I like to call "a bad move." And I should know. I have made more of them than I can ever count.
Dec-19-05  netlava: The game was already won for black before a4.
Sep-27-06  aw1988: Yes, Black was horribly losing anyway.
Mar-08-07  firefight: White was trying to avoid 28. ... Qc3+ or Qd2+ leading to mate.
May-23-09  ozmikey: Wonderfully energetic game by Korchnoi.
Feb-18-17  Toribio3: Korchnoi is one of the greatest grandmaster of all time.
