Jan-29-07  fromoort: Wow! Nice!
Apr-21-09  DWINS: Smyslov might be thought of as mostly a positional player, but he had some bite to his game also.

Here he dominates the c4 square which cramps Whites game, and then when the game gets really complicated he sees further into the position and forces resignation in only 23 moves.
