  tamar: Gufeld was standing well after Spassky's error 21 Be3, but rushed his c pawn forward which fell to the desperado 22 Qxc3

Instead with 21...Qb7, he could have held the c pawn advance for later, since 22 bxc4 Nxc4 23 Qxe2 Nxe3 24 Qxe3 Nxd5 wins a pawn for Black.

It's little flaws like these that make me imagine Fischer in 1963 devoured these scores once he got them knowing he would not miss such opportunities.
