Feb-13-03  ughaibu: 32. Rd2 very unexpected.
Apr-03-07  Chicago Chess Man: This could be a very difficult Sunday puzzle after 31...d2. It took me a long time to see that, if 32..Rxd2, 33. Nh6+ followed by 34. Qb8, and black is defenseless.
Dec-26-07  Everett: Is 31...d2 a blunder then? Perhaps black can play g6 here, Kh8, f6 or even a5.
Nov-05-16  Howard: Just what was the occasion for these two Spassky-Portisch games that took place in Budapest in 1967 ? Was it an exhibition match ?
Nov-05-16  ZonszeinP: I think Portisch should've played 31-...Qe6.
He could've probably saved himself
Nov-05-16  ZonszeinP: Hello <Howard>, I think this was played in a match Hungary vs USSR

It took me aback for a moment before I realised that was the refutation.

Nov-05-16  Granny O Doul: 32. Rd2 is the sort of move where it's very hard for Black to bluff that he'd expected it.
