  Honza Cervenka: 12...Bg4 was a mistake allowing white to win a Pawn by little combo. Vidmar turned his advantage into full point in quite convincing and instructive way.
Dec-14-17  Retireborn: 38.Bxf5! is an elegant and correct sacrifice; in contrast 38.hxg6? Kxc8 39.g7 Ne6+ would probably lose.

Vidmar avoids the trap 41.Kg7 a5 42.h6 Nh7 43.Kxh7? Kf7 and the pawn ending is drawn.

The final position with three pawns v knight is rather pretty to look at.
