  Peligroso Patzer: In the final position White can defend with 32.♕e2, for example, 32. ... ♗g1+ 33.♔h1 ♕b1 34.♖b2 ♕d1 35.♖d2 ♕xe2 36.♖xe2 ♖d1 37.g3 ♗c5+ 38.♔g2 ♗xa3 39.♖e8+ ♔h7 40.♖a8=.

Did Korchnoi lose on time?

Aug-16-07  Karpova: <The position is in no way lost, White can easily defend. What on earth happened? Apparently Korchnoi, who had 20 minutes on his clock (vs just five minutes for Peter Ács), did not see the defending move 32.Qe2! The tournament arbiter Sandor Videki tells us that in the second half of the tournament Viktor had medical problems with his eyes – and here it resulted in a rare moment of chess blindness for him.>
Aug-16-07  RookFile: That's too bad. Of course, Korchnoi is quite capable of playing chess blindfolded. I think he's just getting old.
Aug-16-07  Karpova: It's probably the same as with blitz and time trouble - If you are playing blitz you are prepared (mentally) but if you face time trouble in a classical game... Sad fpr Korchnoi to lose a game like this especially due to the fact that he couldn't really do anything against it.
Aug-17-07  pacelli: <Peligroso Patzer> In the final position White can defend..

After 32..Bg1+ 33.Kh1 black plays 33...Bf2+ followed by Qg1++ (instead of 33...Qb1)
