  GlassCow: Portisch puts on a clinic for Sicilian lovers everywhere. First, the domination of the dark squares, particularly d4 and b4. Next, the exchange sacrifice on c4. Finally, the beautiful invasion of queen, rook and knight for the grand finale. Absolutely brilliant play.

  sachistu: The score given here is incorrect. Beginning with move 29, the score should be 29.Qg3 h6 30.Rb2 Kf8 31.Kh2 Bc6 32.Nd5 Bxd5 33.cxd5 Rdb8 34.Reb1 Rb7 35.a4 Rab8 36.Bf1 Rb4 37.Bc4 R8b6 38.Kg2 Qb7 39.Qc3 with the rest as given here.

Apparently, the huge lemon (36.Bf1??) has gone unnoticed (e.g. 36...Nf3+!)

The corrected score helps explain some of Black's moves. The correct score can be found in Revista de Sah, 1962, Issue #6 p.89, Magyar Sakkelet, 1962, Issue #3, p.34, and in Hajtun's book on Portisch, game #12 p.59. I'll submit a correction slip.
