  Phony Benoni: If Stein seems a bit more stubborn than the usual GM here, it's because the game was played in the last round and a draw would have given him sole first place. As it was, he tied with Spassky and Kholmov, but was able to win the ensuing playoff.

  zydeco: Bagirov played a great game here, as spoiler - this is one of these games where the strategic complexity of the French is on full display. After 22.....f6!, black has all the play.
Aug-31-18  edubueno: 18 Axf5?! es medio error (half mistake); 19 Cf6?! es otro medio error (half) porque era mejor 19 f4! y 20 b4!, hasta ese momento la partida está igualada. Pero 22 bxc4?! deja mejor a las negras que responden brillantemente 22...f6! como puntualizó zydeco.
