  plang: 6..Bb4 was popular at the time but is not played much anymore. 8..dxc was new and has been repeated a few times but seems illogical to me as one of the ideas behind 6..Bb4 was pressure on e4. 10..e5 and 15..Qf8 were suggested as improvements. 21 Bh6! is quite clever. The tempting 24 Bc4+..Be6 25 Nxf5..Qd7 26 Bxe6+..Rxe6 27 Ne7+..Qxe7 28 Rf8+..Rxf8 29 gxf8(Q)+..Qxf8 30 Bxf8..e2 would have actually been losing for White. Tolush won the brilliancy prize for this game.
