  keypusher: Fischer winds up playing the white side of a King's Indian, in effect. 17. bxa5 probably surprised Ivkov. A pretty center break with 29. e5 and 31. d7! wins the game.
Sep-09-07  D4n: There just wasn't enough power to attck with on move 26 by Ivkov.
May-08-11  Damianx: Even though he lost here he had quite a bit of success with his opening it tended to warp the main lines

  kingscrusher: This isn't as smooth a win as it seems - Black had 30... Qe6 and was actually standing better there.

Later 34... Rc2 makes things a whole load worse for black. Black had to play 34...Ra4 and prevent Na5
