  GrahamClayton: "The final position is interesting because although all the white and black pieces are situated on the edge of the board, Black's pieces are so far-ranging that there is no defence. From the point of view of composition the artistic influence would be stronger if Black's bishop were on a8." - Botvinnik

  Honza Cervenka: 20.Ra5 was a mistake allowing very elegant finish based on exploitation of position of the Rook and weak back rank. 20.Ra1 would have been better.
