    MCO13 lists the following under Queen's Gambit, Semi-Slav, Line 61:

    I couldn't believe Black's 10th move, so I looked up the game in a database. Should be exd5. Nikolic - Beliavski, Sarajevo 1982. 1/2 - 1/2

    Just to show that this line can result in an exciting game (though the odds are against it):

    MCO 13 differs from MCO 10. When MCO 13 came out Walter Korn had a
    lot more source material to call on. Informator was out then.

    So a lot of the lines end with another more trusted source other than
    Walter's comments or him relying on 1920's and 1930's analysis which
    he never went over with a fine toothed comb (and no wonder - have you
    considered what a task this out without a database.)

    I've found a few typo's and a lot of the more interesting lines
    (dodgy sacs but giving play) are not mentioned. It's pretty dry.
