Sep-14-04  capablancakarpov: 33.Bxd4!! is a wonderful move.After the Queen sac,White´s Q and Knigth are blockade,so Black has time to advance a-b-c pawns in order to promote.

  tamar: Pillsbury's 33...Bxd4 had to be deeply calculated, as it appears that Janowski could sacrifice the queen back with 35 Qxe4 Bxe4 (35...Bxf2+ oddly only draws) 36 Nxd4 and get an equal game.But Tarrasch in his notes observes that Black could then walk his King to c5 and use his mobile queenside majority. Still this was White's best chance, and there could be some drawing lines.
Jul-23-09  Knight13: Position after move 12 would've been a draw-agreed if it was Karpov vs Kasparov. Same goes to Botvinnik, Smyslov, Spassky, etc. among others.

Of course, 19. Bxd5? is the positional error that cost white big time.

33. Qd3 solves more problems than Rc1??.

Oct-06-17  Serpentin: les coups 43 et 45 a la fin sont de belles perles!
