  Honza Cervenka: Oh, it looks so easy..... if you know how to do it!

Pretty game, very characteristic for Smyslov.

May-13-08  hrvyklly: Phew, Smyslov's infamous endgame prowess... I'd have played maybe 1% of those moves from the middle-game onwards. The man's a genius I tell thee!

  Chessdreamer: Actually Black resigned after 42.Rc7.
Sep-23-13  zydeco: Smyslov gives exclamation marks to 12.Bc3 (which covers a5 and frees d2 for the king); 17.Bxf5 (which keeps the f-file closed); 20.Rb5; 28.Rxe6; 30.a6; and the consolidating 38.Rc8.

26.Rc5 took phenomenal calculation -- to see through both 27....Nxb4 and 27.....Ne7.

Smyslov criticizes only 9....cxd4 (better 9....Bd7) and 40....Kh5 (instead of Kf7).
