  Honza Cervenka: What a game! Despite of some inaccuracies magnificent fight. Instead of 18.Rad1 white should play 18.Red1. Leaving of a-file allowed black to get pretty good counter-play. After simple 25...Bxd4 26.Rxd4 Rxb4 white's material advantage would have played no big role and the game would be drawn easily by black. After 25...Bf8 Portisch surprised his opponent with bold sac of exchange. 34.c5 was a zeitnot slip (34.Rc2 would have been more precise) which Stein failed to exploit (36...Bc4 with next Ba6) being in time pressure too.
