I wonder why there are no followers. Any drawbacks that white didn't explore?

  tamar: Other games used a different move order 10...Bb4+ 11 Bd2 Bxd2+ 12 Qxd2 e5 etc http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches..., where White appears to do well.

  Honza Cervenka: Btw, Matulovic was not much lucky in games where he got N vs B ending against Korchnoi. See also Matulovic vs Korchnoi, 1984

  whiteshark: Thanks <tamar> for pointing this out. I like <16.Rfe1> as in M Mukhitdinov vs Gusarov, 1961 the most.

  GrahamClayton: Once the rooks are exchanged, Matulovic is unable to stop the advance of the Black central pawns. His ideal plan would be to set up a "fortress" with ♘c5, ♔d4 and b4, making it very difficult for Black to advance the pawns. Korchnoi sees this, hence the move 28...♗f5, which stops White's plan of Nd3-Nc5.
