  zydeco: Around move 24, Gligoric has what looks like a dream Benko Gambit-type position, but it's difficult to make progress.

Maybe 26....Na6, planning to bring the knight to c5 and b3, would be an improvement on the game. Black could probably also tread water for a few moves and it's very hard for white even to untangle his pieces.

Hard to tell if Gligoric missed the strength of 27.b3! when he played 26....Nxd5?! or if he really thought the piece sacrifice gave him winning chances.

Nov-26-19  paulthebox: 31... Rb2 seems like a much better chance
