  perfidious: It may well be that Portisch had a hallucination; I should point out, though, that the relatively 'better' 22.... Qc2 23.Qxc2 Bxc2 24.Nxc4 offered no hope either.

And Portisch responds with Rec8.

Say what?

Your average club hacker looks at this for 10 seconds and plays ...Rxe2. Still a ballgame, white is better.
