Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-24-06  monad: This game was played twenty years ago, when even in a world championship qualifier match, players could retire after the 40 move time limit was reached, and then, <curiouser and curiouser, confer with their chums on how to continue>.

If I had a 'favourite-game' collection, this game would probably be in it.

This might make a nice puzzle with 41....Black to play. Sokolov has three reasonable Queen moves to choose from. He is probably wondering why he allowed White to move up his Rook in order to make a play for d5. Too late now. Black needs to pull something out of the bag.

There must have been a serious time scramble for both players, but Sokolov managed to hang in there.

  whiteshark: This was the last game in the candidate match and Sokolov was one point behind. A must win situation with black to get a tie.
Mar-31-16  Howard: No, it was Game 12 in a 14-game match.
