Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-07  Tacticstudent: Great game by Korchnoi. IMO, the interesting facts on this game are the fight around the h-file and how the endgame is totally for the e- passed pawn.
Jan-26-11  KingG: Korchnoi says he vaguely remembered the game Korchnoi vs Polugaevsky, 1963 when he reached the position after move 9, and it helped him quickly make the move 10.Ng1, as was made in the Polugaevsky game(although there were in fact some slight differences in the position).
