  luzhin: 25...Bg6 26.Qxg6 Rxe1 27.Nd3 delays Black's fate by one move -- and a horrible fate it is.
Jul-10-07  WarmasterKron: 25.Nc1! is a great shot. Nice to see Korchnoi's still a fantastic player.
May-09-08  vanderyacht: Could someone explain what black is thinking with his 24th move?
Apr-13-09  ToTheDeath: <Could someone explain what black is thinking with his 24th move?>

Black thought he was preventing the knight from moving because of the attack on e1.

Apr-13-09  tommy boy: nice fork
Jan-10-13  stanleys: One blunder (24...Qb4) ruins black's creative play
