Feb-26-03  ughaibu: A nice combinative game by Stein.
Apr-25-08  marekg248: It's amazing how Mr. Stein got his pieces work together. He went for f7 square like a hound dog after his opponent weakened it with 11...♖d8.

the position looks a bit like Fischer vs Geller, 1967

Stein had the same idea: a pawn rush f5-xe6-xf7.

After 18.Rxf6 there is once more a bit of a similarity:

Aug-21-15  ToTheDeath: Stein's play was deadly accurate after ...b5? No wonder he was such a feared player.
Dec-23-15  jerseybob: After 13..e5, which Gufeld's book recommends, we'd have a sort of Sozin-Fischer position with 14.Qd3,Bc6 when 15.Bf6 might be best. White certainly has the edge, but black could hold out longer than in the game.
