  Honza Cervenka: Despite of seemingly harmless opening Smyslov completely outplayed Polugaevsky in the middlegame. World class performance.
May-18-13  dmvdc: The funny part about the game is that it was, according to Smyslov, the first time in his career that he had played the Vienna. He said:

<My intention was to employ an old and half-forgotten continuation.>

Nov-12-15  jerseybob: Smyslov, a long-time devotee of the Closed Sicilian, plays his favorite opening in another setting.
