  plang: 13 Bc1 was new; 13 Bf4 and 13 Nh4 had been played previously. 18 dxc created hanging pawns for Black but they turned out to be more of a strength than a weakness. After 28 f3? Black obtained a solid advantage with 29..d4!. With 31 f4? Portisch apparently underestimated Chiburdanidze's exchange sacrifice with 31..Rxe5!. 32 fxe..Bxg2 33 Kxg2..dxe would have been very strong for Black. Very nice attack! Cute queen trap at the end.
