Aug-18-18  CountryGirl: Amazing that Gligoric had such a dominating score against Ulf (6-1). What was it in their styles that produced that lopsided a result?!
Aug-18-18  Nosnibor: ^CountryGirl^ The simple answer is Glivoric was the stronger player.
Aug-18-18  Howard: For awhile, he certainly would have been, but keep in mind that Gligoric was over 25 years older than Ulf. As the former's age would have started to catch up with him, one would think that the tide would have eventually reversed.
Aug-18-18  Nosnibor: At the time tbis game was played Gligoric was 60 years of age whilst his opponent was just 32 !

  Count Wedgemore: Andersson did not have to play 28.Rdxd3. After that move he is clearly lost, ending up with a pawn for the exchange. Granted, he had to give up material, but 28. Bxd3 is much better and gives White more practical chances.. After 28...Rbd4 29. Kf2 Rxd3 30. Raxd3 Rxd3 31. Rxd3 Bxd3, White has two connected passed pawns for the bishop, and even though his position is still very difficult, at least he would have a chance to save the game.
