GM Ulf Andersson had played exceptionally safely and made more draws than could be expected. Hillarp-Persson and IM Hellsten asked him throughout one evening and the next morning questions like: "Wouldn't it be nice to win a game Ulf?" and finally Ulf became quite frustrated about these questions and their implication. In something like close to shouting he exclaimed: "Alright, alright, then, I will play for a win. But under no circumstances will I take any risks." Andersson won his next game against Kengis.

  woldsmandriffield: Unless Kengis really did play 74..Ra8+ (given as a variation) instead of 74..Kg7, it is difficult to see how Andersson won this game either.
Dec-17-19  Olavi: The game indeed ended 75.Rd8 1-0, as per bulletin.
