Digging into the past

The following game is one I annotated for an upcoming article on Computers and Chess. It comes from the very first Correspondence World Championship, and given its vintage, was obviously played without computer assistance. Nonetheless the moves chosen have a very high correlation with Rybka 3.0, searching to fixed depth of 13 ply. The main reason for this is that it was a highly tactical game, and lots of moves were forced. Nonetheless it still impresses me that both players were able to analyse the tactics to the level that they did.
