  Brettwith2ts: I like this game. I always like it when I can entomb an enemy piece. I actually played a kid, in the state tournament no less, who couldn't understand that his bishop, in a position like this, but with a few more pieces on the board, was basically worthless. He offered me a draw, which I refused, and I later sacrificed a knight for a pawn, just to prove the point to him.

(He was an arrogant jerk, or I might have been nicer. He first tried to shortchange me on time, then laughed openly at one of my moves. The draw offer was just the last straw.)

  fredthebear: This ends in zugswang. Any move by White makes his position worse.

  HeMateMe: it seems surprising to me that a player of Sax's caliber would let a piece get caught in a simple trap.

of course it's always easy to sit back and kibitz a perfect game.

I like the way korchnoi took the pawn, weakening his kingside, then found a way to liquidate all of the heavy pieces so that his exposed king was suddenly as asset, not a liability.

Apr-18-17  Eusebius: Full control by Korchnoi.
Always fascinating to see the Zugzwang.
