Mar-14-02  knight: Instead of 22...h6? allowing a white rook to reach the seventh rank,black could have equalized with ...Nf6.
Feb-22-04  lordhazol: yes knight i think so 22 ...h6 ? But after Rad1 white is slightly better.
Oct-09-04  Dick Brain: Flohr must have seen 23. Nxe6 if he saw 23. Rad1 I wonder why he didnt play it.

<knight> yes 22..h6? is terrible. How about for Black 22...Nc5 23. Rad1 Rxd4 24. Rxd4 f6 25. Nf3 e5 26. Rd5 Rc8 and all troubles seem gone.
