  Mateo: It is amazing that Sokolov, who was at this time one of the strongest players in the world, allowed his opponent to put him in the Punishment Park. The only thing the Russian could do was to wait and see which way the cat Andersson would eat the mouse Sokolov. Really it is hard to believe that Sokolov did not know his passive defence would finish in a loss against such a strong opponent. I guess that Sokolov was under the shock of his defeat against Karpov.

Perfect play in the Knight vs Bishop ending for Andersson.
