Mar-24-15  bachiller: A great Roman Viktory.
Mar-25-15  asianwarrior: Pardon for my ignorance, but where is the winning move here?
Mar-25-15  kingfu: After Kg1 white is down enough material for black to win. Question is why didn't Korchnoi play BxR? Anyway a rare loss for Korchnoi in the KID. Viktor is +128 against the KID!! He actually got in someone's face after beating him and said, "You played the King's Indian against ME?"

34. BxR Qc6+ and it's mate.

33. Ne7+?? was a loser. The game was about even before that. But Black was threatening to force an immediate draw with Rh2-g2-h2, and White tried too hard to stop it.
