   May-01-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: This is mathematically interesting: At move 21...dxe4 the pawns are split into two islands. On the king side the ratio is 5 to 4, (not bad) but on the queen side it is 3 to 1 (awful). I think there is something decisive about that, but I am not sure.
   Nov-30-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
Bolgoljubov: It would be interesting to allow the World Champion to play in the Candidates Tournament. If the WC wins the Tournament that would forestall the Match, otherwise they would have to play the winner. This could add more drama and interest to the cycle?
   Jan-08-10 Korchnoi vs Huebner, 1973 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: Notes and comments from Victor Korchnoi about this game: This was Korchnoi’s final game of the Interzonal Tournament in Leningrad (not to be confused with the Candidates Tournament of 1973). Korchnoi considers it one of his finest tournament performances of his career. He ...
   Jan-08-10 Korchnoi vs Udovcic, 1967 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: More notes from Victor Korchnoi In a subsequent lecture Korchnoi says that fans of the French Defense should not be discouraged playing against Gellar's pawn sacrifice idea. "When I play the French Defence I don't try and grab the pawn d4", says Korchnoi. He gives the following
   Jan-04-10 Korchnoi vs Tal, 1962 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: Korchnoi's comments from his 2005 DVD: "My Life for Chess" Korchnoi said that before the start of this game his record against Mikhail Tal was 5 wins and 5 draws and that Tal was “generally afraid of him” at this point in their careers. 9… Na6 Korchnoi does not believe that this
   Jan-04-10 Korchnoi vs Tal, 1965 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: I think this game is mis-labeled and mis-dated? Korchnoi says this game occurred in a team competition between Leningrad and Latvia in 1953. This was Korchnoi’s first ever game against Mikhail Tal. Korchnoi and Tal were both playing 2nd board. Korchnoi was 22 years old and Tal ...
   Jan-04-10 Simagin vs Korchnoi, 1956 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: sleepkid, Thanks, that is what I meant! :)
   Jan-04-10 Korchnoi vs Geller, 1954 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: Korchnoi considered Efim Geller to be his senior and in the same generation as Petrosian, Averbakh, Bronstein, Furman and Taimanov. Korchnoi’s generation was Tal, Spassky, Stein, Gufeld. Korchnoi felt he and the younger generation need to prove them selves against the older ...
   Jan-04-10 V Golenishchev vs Korchnoi, 1949 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: Comments from Victor Korchnoi about this game: Junior Team Championship of the Soviet Union. Korchnoi on the Leningrad Team with Spassky and Lutikov. Korchnoi’s personal score in the competition was 5 ½ out of 6. Victor Golenishchev was the leader of the Russian Federation ...
   Jan-04-10 Smyslov vs Korchnoi, 1952 (replies)
Bolgoljubov: Hey Fusilli, Thanks, that makes sense! ----- The other interesting thing Korchnoi says about this game is that he had prepared at home to play the Grunfeld Defense and had his mind set on it. He considered Smyslov's first move 1 Nf3 a novelty and was literally dumbstruck ...
