  Gypsy: ...Mikhail Botvinnik, who attended the match, derisively commented : <'Aha! Yusupov does not know the Botvinnik vs Keres, 1952 game. That is no good!'> In fact, Yusupov did of course know the game, but at the board he could not find the means of avoiding White's central initiative. -- Mark Dvoretsky & Arhur Yusupov, "Positional Play".
Nov-07-05  LIFE Master AJ: A very nice game by "Chucky" ...
of course, he has probably played dozens ... if not hundreds ... like this.
Nov-07-05  KingG: A personal favourite in this line is Kasparov vs Ulf Andersson, 1988.
