  plang: 15 f4!? very double edged - after 21 c5 White's center is weak. Guimard may have overlooked 27..Ne2+ winning a pawn. 38..Bc6 set a trap that Guimard fell into (39 Rf2 would have avoided the trap leaving Black with work to do to obtain the win). Kotov got the idea for the trap to a game he had lost to Botvinnik in the 1939 USSR Ch with a similar combination at the end. White actually sealed 49 p-r4 without indicating wchich rook pawn. This gave Kotov the choice of which rook pawn to move so White resigned though, of course, he was lost either way.
