Korchnoi-Karpov, Baguio 1978 (21)
I did a little research and analysis on the line that Steve Stoyko recommended the other day in his lecture. There are surprisingly few games in the databases, so I decided to analyze Korchnoi-Karpov, Baguio City World Championship Match 1978, Game 21, where Karpov tried out 10...Re8!? as Steve suggests. He lost the game, likely because he followed too soon with 11...e5? -- but it is still very much worth looking at if you are interested in these lines as Black or White. So far I have posted the PGN file of my analysis for you to download and you can also view it online as a java applet.
