Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-31-06  Albertan: This game was played as part of a match between the then USSR Republic and the country of Yugoslavia in 1971. In this match, Stein played three games (this game as Black and two games as White:vrs Minic and vrs Parma), and won them all. Korchnoi was the top scoring Soviet player in this match scoring 4/5.
Aug-31-06  Albertan: The move 5.cxd5 is the main line for White at that stage of the game. The move 8.e3 is a rarely played continuation for White. The main continuation is 8.Nxe4 after which play ususally continues: 8...dxe4 9.Ne5 Qd5 10.Be3 Nd7 11.Qc2 Nxe5 12.Bxe4 Qc4 13.Bxe4 Qc4 14.dxe5 Qxc2 15.Bxc2 Bxe5=
Aug-31-06  Albertan: The move 12.Nb3 has only been played in one game since this game: (Jensen-Pedersen,DEN-ch corr, 1984 1-0)
Aug-31-06  Albertan: Stein seems to have gained an advantage after Marovic played 14.Rc1. One alternative move is 14.e4 after which play might continue: 14...Rfd8 15.Qe2 dxe4 16.Rfe1 e3!? 17.fxe3 Rac8=

Aug-31-06  Albertan: Marovic seems to have lost the game when he played 37.Rh2? Instead he could have been more patient and played 37.Kd3 after which play might have continued:

37. Kd3 Rc7 38. a4 e6 39. Rf2 Bd8 40. Rf8 Bg5 41.Ba3+ Kd5 42. Rb8 a6 43. Rb6 Rd7 44. Rxa6 Bd8
