  Honza Cervenka: 19.Ne6! is a pretty move.

In final position if 41...Bxa5, then 42.Bd4 Re1 43.Rc5

Oct-07-05  notyetagm: 19 ♘e6!, cutting off (<interference>) the Black e8-rook's defense of the e5-knight
Jul-31-09  King.Arthur.Brazil: After nactural: 19...fxe6, 20. Bxe5 Bxe5 21. Rxe5 exd5 22.Rxe8+ Qxe8 23.Qxd5, white position seems better, That's why Lillie went on other way. 21.Nc5 win a P. Cannot play 22..Rb6 cause 23.Bxe5 Bxe5 24. Nd7 Re6 25. Nxe5 Rxe5 26. Bxb7!, also directly 23.Nxb7 win the p. The other line gives a more clear winning final. A passed P with 2B and R on the board is enought!

Jun-27-14  zydeco: This game is a good example of Smyslov's tendency to play for queenside space.

Smyslov says 9....c6 is correct.

29....Bf8 is a trap. If 30.Bxa5 Nxf2!

33.Bf1! defends against 33.....Rb1
