Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-16  luftforlife: In his June 17, 1990 chess column in The New York Times analyzing this game, GM Robert Byrne noted that Black's gambit arising from 13. . . . c5 was originated by GM Albin Planinc playing Black in his victory over Enrique Mecking at Mar del Plata in 1971. (Both games are classified ECO C78.)

Here's the link to the column:

"White has sacrificed a piece for two pawns and enduring pressure. Particularly annoying is the pin along the h4-d8 diagonal. Black's forthcoming plan is original and unexpected."
