Jan-06-02  king: 13. ... f5 and ... f4 left to many holes in black's position.

  Sneaky: ...f4 looked like it might have been good, if only ...f3 (and later ...e4) followed. Why didn't Tolush play ...f3? I guess he thought that ...e4 was impossible, and the overextended f3 pawn would be lost?
Jan-04-16  PJs Studio: This game is considered to be one of Kotov's greatest victory's. Really?

I wonder who said that? He didn't include it in his book Game Collection: Grandmaster At Work

Jan-05-16  PJs Studio: Interesting! It was highlighted in wiki on line. It might be agame indicative of his play or a final round victory that netted him a title or tournament win...etc

  perfidious: Lot of POV content in those Wikipedia chess articles--neither is it clear to me why this game should have been cited as being of note.
