Dennis Monokroussos' lecture on the <english defense> covers this game.

Pretty drastic defeat for Zsuzsa!

Nov-13-06  HelaNubo: Why not 7. Bg5. It seems more natural than 7. f3. Eg: 7. Bg5 exd5 8. exd5 Bxc3 9.bxc3 Na6 10. Nf3 0-0 11. 0-0 with equal game. Morover, 17. Kf2?? is of course the decisive blunder, allowing the check in e3 in the line 17.... Nxd5 18. Nxd5 Rxd5 19. Qc2 Qe3+ 20. Ke1 (20. Kf1 Rd2) Ba6. After eg 17. Kf1 Nxd5 18. Nxd5 Rxd5 19. Qc2 Qe3 White has one tempo to play 20. Rd1, with an inferior but still playable game. (Eg 20...Rxd1 21. Qxd1 Qxc3 22. h4!).

  FSR: This game shows that the Kangaroo Defense (2...Bb4+) has quite a kick to it! (Yeah, I know the game transposed to the English Defense, but I don't have any jokes about that opening.)

Surely that would be reaching the semi-final of the 1988-90 World Championship Candidates cycle?
