Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-07  Harvestman: A classic Larsen counter-attack. From a bad position he plays 28.c4 (a move I wouldn't even consider in this position), and when black mistakenly captures with 28...Bxc4? then 29.Nf4! turn the tables completely.
Mar-22-12  Troller: One of Aronian's favourite games. Contrary to <Harvestman> he would probably consider 28.c4 in the same position.

  GrahamClayton: Larsen's comment after 27...♗e2, taken from "Selected Games of Chess, 1948-1969":

"At this moment the Dutch master Spanjaard entered the tournament hall. He asked Donner if anything interesting was going on, and the grandmaster said 'Yes, Larsen has a lost game!' I am sure that this was the correct evaluation of my position. Up to now Black has played better in this game, but the situation is still so difficult for both sides that it can be useful to take advice from the words of a famous French general: 'My centre is broken, my flanks are retreating, I attack!".
