  HeMateMe: the Petrosian variation of the French eliminates black's bad LSB. Smyslov really opens up the position too, with the attacking pawn moves on the the kingside. Impressive.
Sep-20-20  Viking707: Smyslov played brilliantly against Gligoric, who is one of three great players (in the 20th century) who never became world champion (Rubinstein and Gellar are the other two).

  0ZeR0: Bronstein deserves a mention or two as well. He came about as close as you could to becoming world champion without actually doing so.
