  An Englishman: Good Evening: Very nice find. The vacating sacrifice 14...c4 is a fine example of the type. Later, Polugaevsky shows nerves of steel in withstanding White's King side attack.
Mar-17-14  LIFE Master AJ: A great game by Polugayevsky, White may have been winning ... or close to winning, at one point.

This is game # 90 in the book by GM Andrew Soltis, "The 100 Best."
