  Honza Cervenka: Pretty game by Gligo. 22...Nbxd5!? was a positional sac of piece for two Pawns and mobile Pawn center and pieces. It was not a forced win for black but white did not manage to solve all problems over the board.

  Honza Cervenka: Of course, 18.Qxb5 would be no good for 18...Ba6 19.Qxa5 (19.Qc6 loses for 19...Rc8) 19...Bc4 with capture of the Queen though white gets quite a lot of material for that and so the advantage of black would be rather small if any. Bur black can also force draw by repetition (19...Bb7 20.Qb5 Ba6 etc.).
Dec-30-08  veerar: 17.Bd3,followed by Qd2 seems better.Of course,Gligoric is a specialist,against the Ruy!
