  zydeco: 12.Bf1 and 14.Rc1 are quiet moves in Petrosian's style.

With 21...fxe4 Taimanov gets carried away, committing to an attack that never materializes. 21...Bxe4 is more balanced.

34.Nxe6 starts a pretty simplification.

Sep-02-17  A.T PhoneHome: If 34... Bxe6, then 35. Rxe6 Qxe6 36. Bc4, winning black queen.
