Viktor Korchnoi 1931-2016

GM Viktor  Korchnoi died June 6, 2016.  He visited Rochester among his many travels where he met some of the western NYS players at the University of Rochester.  Although he never held the World Championship title, he was for many years one of the top tier players where his attacking games sparkled and gave all who studied them, a lasting experience for the appreciation of many, many magnificent games.
