Jul-03-14  zydeco: Guimard digs his own grave in this game. Korchnoi faffs around for most of the middle game. Guimard would have been ahead if he'd played 33....Qe4+. If 34.Kh2 Qf3. If 34.f3 Qf5 35.Rd1 Be3. 33....d4 just simplifies into a worse ending. 38....Rxd5 39.Nxd5 is a bit better for white but not exactly decisive; 38.....b5 just gives away a pawn for free.

  plang: Korchnoi avoided the main line with the rare 5 g3. 8 a4 was a new move; 8 b3 had been played previously. 10..exd?! led to Black getting an isolated pawn without the resulting counterplay that comes with it in some other openings; 10..a5 was a logical alternative. 37..Bc3? was an error; the alternative 37..Be3! would have prevented 38 Rd5 due to 38..Bxf4.
