  Honza Cervenka: In the 10th move the Queens were traded and disappointed spectators were probably thinking that another short boring draw will be agreed soon. But it did not happen...:-)

Smyslov's pressure was terrible. The game illustrates well the importance of development. Thanks to better development white gained the control of opened d-file and exploited it perfectly.

Otherwise, why did he allow the swap of queens with 7..Ng4 instead of 7..Nfd7 as played by Fischer against Barcza(Zurich '59)? Polu's move gave Smyslov just the kind of game he loved.

  perfidious: In a last-round game from the next Interzonal cycle, the loser here came off the winner after queens disappeared early in a critical game: Polugaevsky vs Portisch, 1973.
