Despite having only a bishop for the queen,white got a winning position and finished the game by advancing his pawns quietly.

Sep-18-09  oldsounio: Or maybe it was against Averbach 1951 ?
Y Gusev vs Averbakh, 1951
Oct-19-11  waustad: FIDE has a whole page of Gusevs and chessmetrics mentions 4 of them. It would be easy to mix them up.
