Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-15-14  zydeco: I really like how Gligoric plays this game -- very cheeky and minimalist. He seems to decide that he has a pretty good position out of the opening but can't do anything proactive, so he hints at different breakthroughs but really just shuffles his pieces around and waits for white to overextend. Gligoric retreats a piece six times, returns a piece to the square it came from four times (17.....Qb8 and 18....Qc7 are particularly nice pass moves), with the result that white keeps moving forward, a few weak squares open up on the c-file, and Gligoric is able to break through and win a pawn with very little fuss. It's interesting also how black's king in the center turns out to be safer than white's castled king.

  sachistu: Actually, in the tournament book, White's 40th move is given as 40.Rg3:e3, then inexplicably, the reply was 40...Rb3:e3 (already played!) Immediately afterwards, Gligoric's note indicates White lost on time, so apparently Bisguier's flag fell before he completed his 40th. Most versions (including the one here) stop after Black's 39th.
