Smyslov takes on Ivanchuk... and wins

This game was played at the 1988 USSR Championship. Vasily Smyslov, 68 at the time, shows his 19 years old namesake that he's still a formidable opponent.

Annotated by Vasily Smyslov and Garry Kasparov.


Another game from the same tournament. Smyslov zugzwangs his opponent with a couple of flashy sacrifices.

    Vyacheslav Einhorn was quite hard to defeat in the eighties. That defeat from Smyslov, for instance, was the only one he suffered in the 1988 championship.

    mskiz > the roque check just help the white king to get involve in the endgame. It's not productive at all.

    Ivanchuk's position was lost anyway - two pawns down, with advanced passed pawn for White.

    why 50. Rxa3?  why not try to check the king or something more productive?  just seems silly..

    I don't know, it was in the original annotation, and I didn't change it.

    Perhaps it was a misprint of "!?" in the book. I really don't know.

    Since when does !! stand for 'an interesting idea, accepting an easy draw' instead of a brilliant move?

    I added another win from that tournament, against Vyacheslav Einhorn.
