Allowing Black to seize the initiative. The more restrained
12.dxe5 led to equality.
After 13.Be3 Bxe3 14.Qxe3, 14...Nh5 was planned with f7-f5 to
Black's whole game plan is based on the activation of his bishop
14.dxc6 Nxc6 15.Bg5 h6 16.Bxf6
Perhaps 16.Be3 was better.
16...Qxf6 17.Nbd2 Ne7! 18.Nf1 Ng6 19.g3 Qe6 20.Ne3?
Nezhmetdinov indicates that 20.Bb3 was preferable, because
now Black's initiative becomes overwhelming.
21.Nf5 was not better: 21...d5! 22.exd5 Bc8 23.Ne3 f5 or
23...Bg4 (24.Nxg4 Qxg3+!).
Otherwise 22...f5! with decisive threats.
22...fxg6 23.Nxe5 Kh7
Here, quite unusually, Nezhmetdinov misses the quickest win.
After 23...Rxf2! 24.Qxf2 Rf8 25.Nf7 Rxf7! (even stronger than
27...Kh7 Nezhmetdinov.) 26.Bb3 Kh8! 27.Bxf7 Bxe4! White
is mated in a few moves the bishops dominate the entire board.
24.Rd1 Rxf2!! 25.Kxf2
After 25.Qxf2 Rf8 26.Qe1 Black finishes with yet another rook
sacrifice: 26...Rf1+! 27.Qxf1 Bxe3+.
If now 26.Kf1 Black wins by 26...Rf8+ 27.Nf3 Qxg3.
26.Ke1 Qxg3+ 27.Kd2 Qxe5 28.Nd5 Qg5+ 29. Resigns.
