This would be a good Monday puzzle.

  Richard Taylor: perhaps not as a "puzzle" but as a strategical exerise - "What is the best method leading to winning poeitios ofor Black?" Expain why -it may not mean calculating all the moves but giving good reasons for Black's play - an idea for something extra to the "puzzle" No?

  wordfunph: as related by the late GM Eduard Gufeld from his book The Art of the King's Indian..

<Incidentally, at that time filmmakers were keen on a trick called "candid camera." None of the participants of the championship suspected that a camera was hidden behind one of the curtains in the playing hall. Later this film was used in a documentary entitled Chessplayers (screenplay by Beilin). It turned out that the camera showed the episode when I mated Polugaevsky. At that moment Polugaevsky's hair was practically standing on end!>


Jul-09-12  rilkefan: Anybody understand 15.Qc2 or 28.Bb1?

Well, ok, stockfish prefers 15.a5 to Qc2 but doesn't think the latter is at all bad; I'd still like to hear from someone what Polugaevsky might have had in mind.

But 28.Bxc4 is just strong (+2 instead of +1). And 32.Qxb6 was winning. As was 34.Bxg5 instead of Bc3. 35.Nd4 instead of Bd4 kept a large edge. 36.a5 was still equal, as was 37.Bxg7.
