Aug-17-07  Maynard5: Bondarevsky played this unusual deployment in the King's Indian against Smyslov twice, and lost both times. The second game took place about a decade later. White's seemingly natural 22. Qc3 is the prelude to a kingside attack, which however leaves the queenside pawns vulnerable. Instead, after 22. c3, White can close the queenside and solidify the center, with approximate equality.
Mar-29-20  tigreton: Smyslov skilfully stops White's initiative on the center and on the kingside, and takes advantage of his pawn majority on the queenside. After 21 ... Ne7 the knight is ready to blockade on d6, via f5 or c8, in case White plays the advance d5. And 26 ... e5 followed by ... Nc6 are strong, shutting down the bishop, invading with the knight through d4 (Smyslov loved knights), and making room for the black queen to defend the kingside. The final position shows a nice mate net.
