Korchnoi-Sax 1991 Candidates Match

For our next series of Games of the Day, let’s take a look at what a 60 year old Viktor Korchnoi was able to do in his 1991 Candidates Match with Hungarian Legend Gyula Sax.

For some backstory into this match take a listen to Ben Johnson’s most recent episode of Perpetual Chess where he interviews legendary GM Vladimir Tukmakov, who speaks about his work in this match.

As for the games, let’s get started. As you will see, age does not have to be a barrier as long as love for the game remains strong.
