  Fusilli: What a beating. Smyslov made it flow so naturally.
Sep-06-07  PivotalAnorak: 17.f6! If 17...Bxf6 18.Rxf6 exf6 19.Nd5
Jan-08-15  tessathedog: A beautiful line occurs after 15 f4! I'm sure if that move was played in a game between a couple of 2000ers, Black would simply nip the possibility of f5 in the bud by playing the natural developing move 15...Qd7. Wouldn't you? It was certainly the first thing that entered my head. But then comes 16 f5! (anyway!) gxf5 17 exf5 Bxf5 18 Nd5! A lovely and unexpected double attack...not just the Knight fork on b6, but also Rxf5! followed by a Knight fork on e7. Black can't deal with them both in one move (this variation was pointed out by Soltis in "Pawn Structure Chess").
