  bright1: Instead of Ba6 on Black's 11th move, maybe Qc8 would have been better?

Perhaps Polugaevsky should have played Nd7 on move 15 instead of Bf6?

Furman really restricted the queenside knight (and consequently Black's queenside rook) with 21. Ba4

The move 24. Ng6 forced the exchange of Black's dark square bishop, probably the one piece that was holding together his kingside.

Furman passed on snatching the h-pawn on move 28 and instead, correctly, continued to restrict the movement's of Black's queenside pieces.

Feb-01-11  madhatter5: bright1,I disagree with you on your first point. 11...♗a6 allows 12.♕b3
Aug-30-18  zydeco: 15...dxc4 is probably best (maybe 15...Qc7).

28.Nxh6? loses to 28....Kg6 29.Ng4 Be2
