  lost in space: A well played game by Unzicker. Normally he was on the wrong side of the board when playing against Karpov, Fischer, Spassky etc.

Here he managed complete equality after 25 move.

He was able to play the important move ...c5 in the open spanish game without other disadvantage. Afterwards he avoided any king side attack; After his last move ....h5 there is maybe a very very small edge for white due to his rook on a1 (open a-file).
