Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-14  zydeco: Ivkov blunders with 31.a3, completely missing Larsen's idea of ....Rc4 and ....Rg4. Probably 31.Be5 is mandatory and if 31....Qg6 black is slightly more dynamic in the endgame but white can protect everything.

Ivkov seems to have long-term advantages out of the opening (two bishops and a better pawn structure) but he loses the thread between moves 22 and 24. Probably he needed to develop his rooks.
