      The world chess championship in the Philippines was the most riotous of modern times. Pitting the soviet defector Korchnoi against the golden boy of the soviet establishment - Karpov - the players were not just content to hammer each other over the chess board; they also enlisted such weird assistants as the parapsychologist Dr Vladimir Zukhar and orange-robed gurus from the Ananda Pages: Matches against Karpov. Korchnoi played three matches against Anatoly Karpov, the latter two for the World Chess , he lost the Candidates final to Karpov by the narrowest margin: – Karpov was declared world champion in when Bobby Fischer failed to defend his title. Then, after defecting from the Soviet Union in , Korchnoi won two Candidates cycles to Born: Ma , Leningrad, USSR.

      korchnoi and karpov had quite a rivalry! karpov won it but it was close ( with 31 draws in classical chess, lifetime 56 games). I especially like one of korchnoi’s losses to karpov: G WC Match, 8/26/78, Baguio City, karpov playing black won after sacrificing, forcing mate with a knight while the other knight and rook and king were crowding korchnoi’s white’s king. No corroboration has been found of Bernard Levin’s assertion that after Korchnoi’s departure from the Soviet Union in ‘a new Soviet book on the Karpov-Korchnoi championship match had to have all references to Korchnoi deleted, so that he is simply referred to throughout as “the opponent”’.

    Korchnoi played three matches against Anatoly Karpov. In , he lost the Candidates final to Karpov, who was declared world champion in when Bobby Fischer refused to defend his title. He then won two consecutive Candidates cycles to qualify for World Championship matches with Karpov in and , losing both. The Russian-language R-Sport website quotes Anatoly Karpov: "We should give respect where respect is due. Korchnoi was a chess phenomenon. His style was inimitable. He had an absolutely unique approach to chess. He was a workaholic and a special talent, a very top level chess player.
