Oct-11-06  MadBishop: The Immortal Korchnoi! Still beating accomplished GMs! And showing us the power of a knight outpost while he's at it! Bravo!
Oct-16-06  diagonal: now the life head-to-head confrontations between Korchnoi and Lautier - with games from 1989 to 2006, according to this databank - counts 8 to 2 wins (with 7 draws) for Viktor Korchnoi: incredible!

  plang: Lautier defeated Korchnoi in Ubeda 1997 (probably Lautiers greatest tournament achievement). That game is not included in this database.
Oct-18-06  diagonal: Indeed, this game is (still) missing: Lautier won 1997 at Ubeda (Spain), beating Beliavsky (who was sole second), Korchnoi as mentioned by Plang, Yusupov, Leko and Akopian - coming first with 1.5 points ahead of the rest and performing 2815 ELO! Big win for Lautier.
