Black could have played 13... Bxf3 14. Bxh7+ Nxh7 15. Rxd8 Bxd8 16. Bxd8 Nd4 17. Qb1 Nb3+ 18. Kc2 Nd4+ 19. Kc1 Bh5 with some winning chances.

Mar-28-09  vonKrolock: <Taimanov pointed out> It would be interesting to know when he showed that suggestive, and also, so to say, compelling line - in this article in Russian,, if I'm reading well, it's just stadted that "<both Verlinsky and Rabinovich> made no comment on black's 13th move, and that 13...Bxf3etc is checked with <Fritz and Junior> http://www.chesspro.ru/book/rc25.sh...

  Phony Benoni: <vonKrolock> Taimanov's line is mentioned in <The Soviet Championships>, a book co-authored with Bernard Cafferty and originally published in 1998. On p.23, Taimanov writes:

<"The crucial moment. Both sides seemingly considered the text forced in view of the threat of 14.Bxh7+. Yet here there is a hidden puzzle that was not appreciated at the time, nor in the succeeding seven decades. The point is that, as discovered when analysing for this book, Black had a remarkable combination, giving up his queen to seize the initiative...">

So Taimanov is claiming it as original analysis from the 1990s.
