Tal on this game:

<"Only the fourth game gave me a certain cause for optimism. I once again won the theoretical duel in the Nimzo-Indian Defence, and this time, with the slightly better game, I offered a draw <<<'from a position of strength.'>>> For almost the first time in my life, the sober voice of reason suggested that for the moment it was not worth declining draws, but was better to get into form and attempt to decide the match in the 3rd, 4th, and should the opportunity arise, 5th 'White' games.">

  zydeco: Tal comments that 15.Ng5 was played 'rather nervously.' 15.Bd2 Qb8 might have been an improvement.

Gligoric intended 17.Nxe6 fxe6 18.Bxe6+ Kh8 19.g4 but didn't like 19....Nxg4 20.Bxg4 Qg5 21.Qh3 Nf6. White could have also tried 17.Nxf7 Rxf7 18.Bxe6.
