  Chessical: Pillsbury's clean and aggressive style is well illustrated in his demolition of his opponent's Dutch defence.

It is difficult to say where exactly Levin went wrong. Perhaps swapping off his white squred bishop was too weakening?

It is clear, however, that Levin's <17...Rd5?!> does not work. It allows Pillsbury's Knight to get to <c5> and then <e6>. It appears that <17... Nd7> immediately would have been better:

<18. Re6> Qxf4+ 19. Bxf4 Nb6 20. b3 Nd5 21. Bg5 Nf6 22. Nc5 Rd6 but White still has the superior game with his pressure on the White squares.
