Jul-21-04  azaris: Entertaining, if not perfect game. After 20... ♘g4! three of Black's pieces are hanging and he's winning! There's something for White to kotovthink about.

  plang: Boleslavsky was critical of 3..d6 as timid recommending 3..d5. Kotov was allowed to build up a favorable Samisch Kings Indian setup where White was a tempo up. 7 Bh6? was awful immediately giving the initiative to Black. 12 Na3 was also inferior and after 12..d5! Boleslavsky obtained a powerful attack.
