Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-25-17  clement41: The whole endgame sequence starting 32...b5! is gorgeous.

The black king march on the K-side is devastating and the pawn structure is ideal to make white's Ba8 a weak piece. Of course black had to foresee the bishop sac, as 35...Bxc6?? 36 dc Ke7/e8 37 g5! only move (on any other move black plays 37...h6! and is fine) but the threat 38 f6+ is overwhelming, white will promote and win. White makes the win harder for Korchnoï by not taking the Ba8 right away but instead marching his king too, to protect g4, but the c-pawn march is then a good enough deflection. 48...Kf4! not too difficult to see but deadly precise
