Aug-11-06  Runemaster: 20...Nxg3!

A crushing attack from Aaron, India's first IM. He won 2 out of 2 against Portisch in the database.

Dec-26-09  vdpandit: Lajos Portisch (Hungary) 0-1 Manuel Aaron (India): This game was played on Board 1 on 25-Sept-1962 in the last (ninth) round of the Preliminaries (Group 4) of the 15th Olympiad, Varna (Bulgaria).
Dec-28-09  Breyannis Nektarios: 20.g4 (instead of 20.Bf3) intending 21.e5 is better, with advantage for White. 21.Kxg3 (?) is the decisive mistake. After 21...g5 White is finished. 21.Rg1 is practically forced, with quite an unclear game...
Mar-14-19  Ediciones3jaques: 15.c5! (esto es correcto,pero mal interpretado a continuación;las blancas deben abrir la columna d,después de 15 ...dxc5,con 16.dxc5,seguido de Nd2-c4-d6) 15...dxc5 16 dxe5?? Nd7 17 Qd2 Nxe5 18 Nxe5 Bxe5 19 f4 Bc7 20 Bf3 (la compensación de las blancas por el peón sacrificado parece suficiente,pero...) 20 ...Nxg3! -Soltis Andrew -
