No. 2 Soviet chess star
,r defects to Netherlands

AMSTERI)AM, The Nether-
lands (AP) - Viktor Korchnoi,
the world's No. 2 rated chess
player, dodged a flight home
to the Soviet Union yesterday,
went to local police headquar-
ters and asked for political asy-
lam in The Netherlands.
Korchnoi, ranked next to
world chanpion Anatoly Kar-
pov among players currently
competing on the international
chess circuit, joins a growing
list of Soviet artists and intel-
lectuals who have defected,
emigrated, or been sent into
exile in the West since the ear-
ly 1960s.
THE 4S-YEAR-OLD grandmas-
ter from Leningrad was sup-
posed to fly to Frankfurt en
route to the Soviet Union after
a tournament here. Instead, he
went to the aliens department
of Amsterdam police headquar-
ters and asked to stay, police
said.
A spokesman for the Dutch

Jristice Mi'istry said Korchnoi
then che-k'd oat of his Am-
sterdam hotel and moved to a
oc 'ret ' d ress, where he would
remain until a ruling on his
asylim aplication. That was
expected to come within two
weeks.
Bela Kor-ho-i, who was at
home in leniingrad, told a re-
porter h yclephone she had no
idea her hashand did not plan
to return from the tournament.
"WHAT ('AN I SAY? Life
goes on," she said when asked
-about future plans.
The couple has a 17-year-old
son Igor.
Jewish soirces in Moscow
said they believed Korchnoi
was Jewish,
Korchnoi, a rumpled, soft-
spoken man, was several times
Soviet champion. In chess cir-
cles, he is known as "the devil
Korchnoi" for the intensity of
his style and his arching eye-
browns,
