  laskereshevsky: Smyslov vs Korchnoi, 1960

Checking the position after the white's 8th move....

Korchnoi's way opening was inspired by this old game of him ( reversed colors of course).

  laskereshevsky: The first time a chess-friend showed me this game in the club, my reaction after the first 8 moves was: "What the heck have to do this with the chess?!..."

But after 15/20 minutes of analisis we was really impressed by the Korch's play...

Few months later in a tournament game, i reached a position when after 10/12 moves from the opening, the "crazy" ...pg5 move was asked by the position. But being a player inclined to follow the classical GM's play, for a lot of minutes i wasnt able to push myself throught....

Suddendly I remembered about this game, and the line of my thought was about like ehis: <"If U dont believe in your own (mediocral) chess player capacity, at least believe in the Korch's one!>..."

I Played the move, my opponent was astonished, but after few moves I had had a clear edge... after my victory, the "White" player confessed that his reaction to g5 was: <"What is this?!... but when few moves later your position was clearly better, i said to myself YOU DONT UNDERSTAND NOTHING ABOUT CHESS!">...

Its funny, cose those were almost exactly the same words i said to myself after a little more deep analisys of the Korch's game....

Down the hat to VIKTOR THE TERRIBLE..
