   Jul-25-18 Polugaevsky vs A Zaitsev, 1969
zydeco: Polugayevsky's opening is tame and Zaitsev plays energetically. It's probably a mistake for white to push the a-pawn with 17.a4?! Polugayevsky suddenly realizes he's in trouble with 22.Rab1, acknowledging that the b-pawn is very weak (because of the missing a-pawn) and ....d3 is a ...
   Jul-24-18 Polugaevsky vs Podgaets, 1969
zydeco: Pretty easy game for Polugayevsky. 16....e5 seems too loosening.
   Jun-25-18 V Liberzon vs Polugaevsky, 1969
zydeco: Liberzon sacrifices everything but the kitchen sink - and can't work up any real threats. Good technical game for Polugayevsky.
   Jun-25-18 Polugaevsky vs V Osnos, 1969
zydeco: Why not 21.g3? After 21....Bd6 22.Qxf7+ Kh8 23.Bxe6, white is up a pawn. 15.Qxd6 looks dangerous but works out.
   Jun-25-18 Polugaevsky vs Y M Nikitin, 1969
zydeco: I have no idea why black didn't defend the e-pawn on move 36.
   Jun-25-18 Averbakh vs Polugaevsky, 1969 (replies)
zydeco: Polugayevsky's exchange sacrifice with 22....Rxe3 is poorly-judged.
   Jun-25-18 Cherepkov vs Polugaevsky, 1968
zydeco: Creative, aggressive play by Polugayevsky in the opening - toggling the queen between queenside and kingside. After 18.....Qa5, white can hold onto material with 19.Nd1 e.g. 19....Qb6 20.Re2, but it looks ugly. For instance, 20....Bd5 and white's position is collapsing in on itself.
   Jun-25-18 A Zaitsev vs Lutikov, 1968
zydeco: Very interesting how quickly this goes south for black. The mistake is declining the exchange of bishops on move 34.
   Jun-25-18 A Zaitsev vs Y M Nikitin, 1968
zydeco: Black's resignation feels early, but all lines look good for white. If 22....dxe4 23.f6+ Kf7 24.Bc4+ Ke8 25.Bb5 Rc8 26.Ne5 Bd5 27.c4 If 22....Rfe8 23.Bb5 Rac8 24.Rxh6 and white wins material: 24....Ne5 25.f6+ This game goes sideways quickly for black. Probably the critical mistake is
   Jun-25-18 Averbakh vs A Zaitsev, 1968
zydeco: Everything goes right for Zaitsev in this tournament. This is an interesting strategic French. 27.Nxf7 gives white a chance to bail out. 22....Qxf7 23.Qxe6 Rxf2 24.Qxf7 (if 24.Qxb6 Qxh5 is good for black) R8xf7 25.dxc5 Rxb2! 26.Rf1 Rxf1+ 27.Kxf1 bxc5 28.Rxd5 Ra2 looks like a draw. ...
