Jan-07-09  blacksburg: 10.exf6 and 11.dxc5 is generally not a good way to play in the french, giving black a mobile pawn center.
Mar-13-09  madlydeeply: What are you doing here blacky? I just read about this game in OMGP V and here you are!

Kasparov and Tal wrote some good stuff about this game I'm going to post it later when I have time

Feb-25-18  Adenosina: Difficult middlegame (not so unusual in the Winawer variation) which is full of tension. I did not fully understand why Korchnoi took the c-pawn 14 ... Qxc5 improving the dark-squared bishop of the White player. Nonetheless, he proved to be more tenacious in these kinds of positions. To be honest, the 21 ... e5 pawn sacrifice is rather puzzling to me.

You mean 12. Qxc5, right? Maybe Korchnoi was worried about 13. c4. For example, if

12....O-O-O 13. c4 Qxd2+ (13...Qxc5 14. Ba3 Qb6 15. Bd6 dxc4 16. Bxc4 Na5 17. Bxe7 Nxc4 18. Qc3 Qa5 19. Qxa5 Nxa5 20. Bxf6 Rhg8 21. Bxd8 and white is much better) 14. Bxd2 Rhg8 15. O-O d4 16. c3 e5 17. cxd4 Nxd4 18. Nxd4 exd4 19. Bf3 and white is a pawn up and has a potential attack on the open b file.
