  Mateo: Andersson likes to sacrifice the exchange. This one is not well-known, but it is beautiful. After 21...Nf4? (a blunder) came 22.Rxf4!!.

23...exf4 24.Nxf6+!! Kh8 25.Qe4, White wins.

So Stein sacrificed the exchange too. 22...Rxd3. But after 23.cxd3, he could not play

23...exf4 24.Nxf6+!! Kh8 25.Qe4 winning again.

  Honza Cervenka: 21...Nf4 was a grave mistake. After 21...Kh8 22.Nf2 Rg8 23.Kh1 Nf4 black is OK.
Dec-30-20  DieHard: Ulf and Petrosian are both great role models for employment of exchange sacs. Between the two I think Ulf had some of the deepest.
Dec-31-20  syracrophy: Andersson's 30.♖f2! was loyal to his defensiveness until the end: after 30...♕e7 31.♗g5 and there's no check when taking the <♖c5>
