  plang: 9..a5 is an offbeat line; a reasonable alternative to avoid mainline theory I'm not sure about 16 Bg5; 16 ed looks more logical. Of course, if 18..de? then 19 Bf7+..Rf7 20 Nf7 wins material. 27 Na5?? loses a piece (Gufeld overlooked 28..Re4). 27 Rd4 with the idea of 28 Rd4 was the way to carry out the idea.

  saffuna: According to Joel Benjamin, same opponents, same tournament in 1996:

<Gufeld made a habit of recapturing pieces before Blatny hit the clock (perhaps before his hand even left the piece). When Blatny objected, Gufeld replied that this was how it was always done in Russia. Blatny reminded him that he was not in Russia anymore and should follow the rules. Gufeld then lamented that he was not in Czechosloviakia in 1968 because he would have like to drivea tank over the Blatny family home. The two had to be put in separate rooms for th eremainder of the event.>

  tamar: With the weight of the tank, and the weight of Gufeld, that family home would be flat.
