  samvega: notice the standard ninja move 49.Qe6+
May-11-05  aw1988: Yes, this is the correct gamescore.
May-11-05  lopium: Why not 34.Nxg6?
May-11-05  aw1988: <lopium> Nxg6 grabs material, but not much else. What do you suggest for white after this?
May-11-05  lopium: I suggest Qd2 or Qa1.

  samvega: I believe 34.Nxd6 is necessary to defend b4 and c4. Like for example, 34.Nxg6 Bc4 35.Rd1 Rxb4 36.Nf5 Bxd3+.
May-29-05  Brian Watson: <standard ninja move 49.Qe6+> As against the inferior 49.Rxf8 Kxf8 50.Qf5+, or the plain stupid 49.Qg4+.
Oct-22-13  kastle55: I think it was better for black to take with Bishoop at 22fxg4 ... in example: 22... Bxg4 23. Nxb7? f3! 24.N7xd6 Qh5 25.Nf5 f3xe2 even f3xg2
Oct-22-13  SimonWebbsTiger: it's always interesting to see the notes by one of the players, here Korchnoi.

21.Qe1? (21. Bh4! unclear)
30...Qb6? (30...Bb4 )
33...Be6?! (33...Rg6 )
35.Re5?! (timetrouble. 35.Qc5!=)
35...Rc8?? (timetrouble. 35...Nd7!=)
