One of the best known rivalries in chess was between Karpov and Kasparov, two of the greatest players of all time. However, even before Karpov’s rivalry with Kasparov, was his rivalry with Korchnoi. Korchnoi was a tenacious player known for playing in uncompromising fashion. In this game Korchnoi takes his chances with the Dragon Sicilian. This opening has a slightly dodgy reputation and can lead to wild and complicated games. Karpov shows his true prowess in this game as he dismantles his opponent’s dangerous opening en route to a convincing win.
