  Honza Cervenka: It is quite interesting in how many games Duras managed to outplay tactically his opponent from very dubious or even apparently worse position by uncorking some wild complications. In this game he made quite grave mistake playing 24.Rc1? (24.Bb3 was correct) and after 24...Bf5! he got quite precarious position but then he found objectively insufficient but practically awesome counter 26.g4!? and turned the table in a half dozen of moves.
Dec-17-18  JimNorCal: An excellent observation, and one this is frequently made of Em Lasker as well.
