  whiteshark: "In a double-round tournament in 1970 in Lugano, Switzerland, Larsen destroyed me in both games and on the back of the picture from our first game he wrote: <'With best wishes to Lubos, who allowed me twice to believe in chess beauty'>."

Mar-22-13  fokers13: Why not 15.Bf4 with the idea of Rd1 and shuffling the King over to the queenside? It might seem a bit weird but it should be better than the text.

  whiteshark: <One of the best modern tournament players, Bent Larsen of Denmark, figured out how to clear the second rank for a devastating attack against me 45 years ago in Lugano in 1970 and considered the game to be his best.>

Clock, board, flags, name tags, cautious miens, even hefty sideburns are seen in the playing hall today. The ashtray, however, will not reappear.
