Jun-05-06  shortsight: Korchnoi playing blindfold? He lost it tamely!

Karpov must be banging his head for not using the Spanish Exchange in his world championships matches with Korchnoi.

Jun-23-06  blitz920: hey a great gm lost to a malaysian im. wut a proud
Jun-23-06  Notagm: Hard to believe this is Korchnoi, even if he is a year or two past his prime. Why didn't he simply play Nxf5 on any of several moves. This would have eliminated most of White's attacking potential.
Jun-23-06  mack: Viktor the Terrible, indeed.

To be fair, the man is at least 197 years old now.

Aug-05-06  charleslucas: Bravo Mas!
Jul-12-08  number 23 NBer: <blitz920> Actually Mas was a highly rated FM at the time.

  profK: White effectively pulled this one off without using the rooks or a bishop...This means that black had a solid part in his own downfall !!!
Jun-27-18  Nosnibor: Why did Korchnoi not play the superior 6...h5 instead of the tame 6..Bxf3 ?
