  zydeco: 21.a4 is a cute tactic. (The pawn, attacked two ways, is invulnerable.)

Unzicker calls 40....Nc2 "a little joke" -- with the threat of 41....Ne1#.

The players agree that black played inaccurately on moves 25 and 26, giving white a favorable endgame. White rushed in with 31.f4 giving black opportunities to block the position.

58....h4 was crucial for the draw.
