  plang: In this hybrid English-Queens Indian 11..c5 was new; 11..dxc had been played in Geller-Keres Riga 1968. 20 Qa1? allowed Black to take the initiative; 20 Qc3..Rd8 21 Qxd3..Rxd3 22 Kf1 would have maintained equal chances. After Adams 40..g5! 43 Kb1 would have led to a losing position for White after 43..g4 44 Rxh6+..Rxh6. Vander Weil pointed out that Black missed a winning line with 50..Qxf1+ 51 Rxf1..g4!. 54..Rb4 55 Qd1..Qxc4 would have won for Black as well. The line Adams played instead gave White good drawing chances after 57 Qb5! due to the weak white squares around Black's king. Had Korchnoi played 67 Kg3 he would have maintained his good drawing chances; instead he blundered with 67 Kg4? and was lost.
