  Gypsy: <8...Nb4> Risk taking due to tournament circumstances.

<11.Qd3!...> Bold attacking strategy against Black king. White king will stay in the center.

<12.Ra2!...> A masterful, prophilactic move. Bad Tarrasch would have disliked this move, good Chigorin would have like it. [Paraphrasing a bit.]

<17.f3!...> Simplest.

<14...Kf8> Second thoughts. Looking to escape.

<21...Rc4> 21...Rxc3 22.g6!

<24.Qxf7...> Simplest. The rest is easy.

Kotov (abreviated).

  wtpy: What a great game. And quite logical. Is it just me or are games from the 50s and 60s easier to understand?
