Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-13  parisattack: An epic struggle by two players pretty much in their prime. Stein played the KIA against the Caro-Kann frequently and well. The ...c6 move perhaps plays a bit committing and passive.
Apr-10-15  zydeco: Kind of an odd maneuver with 16.Qe4-c4-f1. My guess is that Stein was playing psychologically, trying to provoke some weakness.

30....Qxe5 seems like either panic or miscalculation. Maybe just 30....Rd7.

Dec-28-15  jerseybob: Stein inflicted 2 famous losses on Portisch, this one and the brilliancy at Stockholm '62. But despite that, Portisch actually had a winning record against Stein. He was a tough customer for most of the Soviet GMs.
