Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-24-16  jerseybob: Trifunovich, in CR Jan.'69, recommends 29..f5, with the idea of fg followed by g6 and an eventual h5 creating an outside passer. Not a guaranteed win of course considering how well Spassky was playing in those days, but black would have all the play.

A passed pawn.

on a scale of 1-10...

Jul-29-16  edubueno: Same as the previous, little advantage to Korchnoi, no possible to win.
Jun-18-17  edubueno: I saw Korchnoi comments to this game. Very deep, and foreseing the famous Spassky vs Kasparov game, on the same line.
Oct-04-17  ewan14: Boris has to defend well here as well
