Nov-12-04  azaris: What a mess from Smyslov! 22...♖xc1+ 23. ♖xc1 ♗d7 24. ♖c7 ♖d8 25. ♖xa7 and Black is without hope.
Oct-22-05  turkishgrandmaster: 22.Rfc1!! maybe Smyslov could have tried 22...Ba4 he will lose two pawns but it is better than resigning.
Oct-22-05  Resignation Trap: Smyslov contributed many important ideas to opening theory. 5...c5 was not one of them. (:()
Oct-22-05  Open Defence: and Boleslavsky is a very under rated player .. certainly of Championship material

  Peligroso Patzer: The 5. ...c5 line worked out much better for Black (0-1 in 21 moves) when Morozevich assayed it against Van Wely (Corus Wijk aan Zee 2001).

  GrahamClayton: 14. ♗e3! is an excellent move, attempting to exchange the Black bishop, which is attacking the White outpost square of d6.

16. ♘e4 continues the theme. Black is forced to exchange, as 16...♗b4 17. g4 ♘g7 18. ♗g5+ ♔f8 19. ♘f6 wins at least a pawn.

  kingscrusher: Beautiful Boleslavsky. Highly underrated player - who may have deliberately let Bronstein catch up to him in the 1950 Candidates. Was very good friends with Bronstein and even his daughter married bronstein. I associate him with "Strategic crush" of the d5 square from the Most instructive games of Chess book by Chernev. The funnny thing is that he is known for research into the "Boleslavsky hole" on d5 - from the black perspective.
