  plang: 9 Nbd2 was a new move in an opening system which shows little ambition. Nevertheless Kotov, true to his nature, created promising complications with the pawn sacrifice 16 e6!; 15..e6 would have avoided this. 17..Qxf7 aiming for a queen exchange looks like an improvement. Black should have retained his bishop with 21..Nxd4 22 Qxd4..Bc6. White could have won quickly with 32 Rd5!..Rxe5 33 Rxd7..Rc8 34 Ra1 followed by Raa7. The rook ending was won for White though the advancement of the Black b-pawn made things easier for White.
