Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-11  Everett: Another unexplored avenue in the Ruy Berlin.
Nov-27-15  zydeco: Another ridiculously smooth win for Smyslov. Dueckstein's play looks reasonable throughout the game but he loses almost without a fight.

Probably 16....f5 is too weakening.

27.c4 cuts off black's counterattack against c2 and creates disharmonies in black's position. 27....Qd3 seems like a better reaction.
