  Honza Cervenka: Nice game by Gligo. he could have played also 23...Bxg5! 24.Qxg5 Qxc2+ 25.Rxc2 Rxc2+ 26.Kb1 Rg2+ 27.Kc1 Rxg5 winning two Pawns, although opposite colour Bishops may complicate conversion of material advantage into the win.
Jan-27-14  jerseybob: In his book, Gligorich gives 13.h5 a ?, calling it "premature, so black counterattacks in the center". Gligorich gives no analysis, so what's a better 13th move for white? I'll give 6 choices, saving my favorite for last: Nc6,Nb3,Nf3,Bd3,f5 and Bg2. But none of them are perfect, and I'd rather have black's game. And here's a weird thing: Gligo says when he was assembling the games for this book, he didn't remember this game! Proof he played too much.
