Apr-01-10  outsider: excellent endgame by black
Aug-28-16  zydeco: This game probably cost Averbakh a place in the Candidates.

13.Qd2 is a bit fanciful. Probably 13.Bf4 is more solid.

15....e5! is an energetic response.

White could have held on to the two bishops with 19.Rfc1.

  perfidious: <zydeco: This game probably cost Averbakh a place in the Candidates....>

Conceding draws to tailenders Sherwin and De Greiff in the two rounds previous to this game did little to help matters, either, as scoring 2/3, as Averbakh did, from the tough trio of Pachman, Matanovic and Filip at the finish was as much as even a top player might have expected.

Dec-31-19  jerseybob: <zydeco: This game probably cost Averbakh a place in the Candidates.> A Place snagged finally by an extreme dark horse.
