"The readiness with which Korchnoi makes concessions
to his opponent is the readiness of the spring to be
squeezed. While allowing his opponent to take vital
space and handing him the initiative Korchnoi quietly,
little by little, prepares the blow. Korchnoi's real
element, the element in which he has no equal, is the
counter-attack." Vasiliev

Never seen anything quite so reminiscent of the S&P. What's also interesting is that Korchnoi's main weakness arose when his opponents would stay back and get him to make the running. For example against Petrosian in the early days he was likely to overextend, though this changed with their matches in 1977 and 1980.
