  Honza Cervenka: Korchnoi's initiative was quite promissing but Smyslov defended well and finally turned the table. 37.Qh5 was a mistake. After 37.Ne6 white could have still fought.

Smyslov didn't think 37.Ne6 boded well for White. He gives following:

<37...Qg4 38.Nxg7 Qxh3 39.Qh5 Qxh5 40.Nxh5 e3 41.fxe3 fxe3, and the e-pawn is very dangerous.>
