  plang: This line was fashionable in the early to mid 70s after Fischer used it against Spassky. White almost always played 6 0-0 and tried to squeeze black positionally (and had some success doing it). Polgar's 9 d5?! is a hyper-aggressive attempt to refute black' set-up which, instead, led to favorable simplification for black. Yusupov thought that after 25 Nd5!..cxd
26 Rc1..Kd6! 27 Rxc8..Rxc8 28 Bxf4..Kd7
the position would have been equal.
25 Nb5! would also have initiated complications that would have led to equality. As played by Polgar Yusupov was able to slowly improve the position of pieces and get the better game. Yusupov felt that 40..Nb7 41 Nc4..Kb4 would have been stronger leading to the immediate win of a pawn. 61..Ke4! was necessary to keep whites king out; Yusupov provided analysis showing that 61..Ke5 only led to a draw.
