Jul-19-08  myschkin: "The Hedgehog has crushed the fairy tales about the importance of spatial/space advantage. When I saw it first played in Portisch-Andersson Milan ’75 (0-1) I couldn’t believe to my eyes!" (András Adorján)

  ToTheDeath: Seems like White voluntarily neutralized his space advantage with moves like 14. e5 etc.
Feb-26-12  RookFile: It does see like white was in too much of a hurry.

  Jonathan Sarfati: White surely didn't have to give a piece away though.

  Domdaniel: Kasparov mentions this game as an indirect influence on his 'octopus' win against Karpov.
Jul-11-15  Octal: This game must have changed Portisch's mind on the Hedgehog. But we see what happens to him when White picks the correct plan of development: Seirawan vs Portisch, 1983
