  perfidious: This was part of a promising start to this event for Cuellar, as he defeated Geller in the first round.

44. ..Qc6!

Mar-14-11  shalgo: <44. ..Qc6!>

What if White then plays 45.Ra6?

Mar-14-11  joupajou: I would counterattack with 45. ..Rc3. If white then exchanges the queens, we'll have an interesting endgame.
Mar-14-11  shalgo: Yes, Black certainly has better chances of saving the game in that line than in the game continuation.
Mar-14-11  Eduardo Bermudez: How many times Korchnoi was checkmated like this?
Feb-25-12  edyedzer: Korchnoi was killed in downtown of the chessboard !!
Feb-27-12  Eduardo Bermudez: 50 years ago !!
Apr-01-12  Eduardo Bermudez: According Chessmetrics, Korchnoi was # 2 on January 1962 rating list !!
Oct-18-12  Eduardo Bermudez: The monarch dies in the middle of the chessboard !!
Nov-18-12  Eduardo Bermudez: Korchnoi bizarrely with his king on e5 !!

  Chessdreamer: White missed the mate in 4 moves, 49.Qe3+ Kc4 50.Ra4+ Kb5 51.Qb3+ Kc5 52.Qb4#.
Jan-02-15  Eduardo Bermudez: Checkmate in middle of chessboard for The Big Viktor !
Mar-12-17  Eduardo Bermudez: "He defeated a number of top players in Interzonals, his victims including Efim Geller and Viktor Korchnoi (Stockholm 1962), Samuel Reshevsky, Aleksandar Matanovic, and Lubomir Kavalek (Sousse Interzonal, (1967))." In other events, I also defeat: Najdorf, Pilnik, Trifunovic, O´ Kelly, Szabo, Panno and Nogueiras.
