Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-13  jhelix70: Beautiful endgame play here by Korchnoi, from a materially even position.

The final position looked like a draw to me at first, but black wins by bringing his king to g1 and his bishop to f1, forcing the exchange of bishops. A neat finish.

Aug-11-16  SimplicityRichard: An interesting transposition into a Dragon. And even more fascinating it is to see an aged Grandmaster, well past his prime, besting Nigel Short, then a younger Super GM at his peak, which I regard to have been the very lengthy period between 1987 and 2007. I can only imagine that Korchnoi must have been a truly formidable opponent in his prime. It's no wonder the Great Tal had a healthy respect for Korchnoi.#
