  Jonathan Sarfati: A typical strangulation game, but today both sides look a little naive. Black opens the side on which he is weaker with 8...c6, and White piles up on the side on which he is weaker. At the time, Black's natural ...f5 counterplay was considered as needing to be prevented at all costs, but White would need two sets of pieces to do this as well as play on the Q-side as the position indicates. Black's 22... g5 was crass, generating weak light squares, allowing a target for h4, and giving up on ...f5.

  GrahamClayton: Black controls the c-file, but it is of little use as White has already controlled the h-file and used it to mount a winning attack on the Black king.
