  plang: 7..b6 is a variation that was a favorite of Keres. The gambit 12..d4!? leads to very sharp play. If 19..Bxf4? then 20 Qxh5! and Black can't recapture without allowing mate. The rook sacrifice does not work after 21 Rxg7+?..Kxg7 22 Rg1+..Kh6! (not 22..Kh8? 23 Qh5!). Gligoric's 31 Rxf7+!? won a pawn but 31 Bxf7! threatening 32 Rxg6+ would have been a better winning attempt. 56..Rf4! held the draw; note that 56..Kg7 57 Kc3..Ra3+ 58 Kb4..Rxf3 59 Rb8 would win for White.
