  Chessical: <13...Nf6> was forced, Taimanov's clever little combination nicely exposes the weaknesses in Black's K-side.

  perfidious: Is it possible that Black is actually:Yuri V Nikolaevsky?

This forcing line is neat, regardless of the identity of that mysterious Black player.

Oct-14-15  saturn2: Suetin says in his book on d4 openings that after 7 Qc2 c6 (instead of c5) and 8 Rd1 white gets an clear advantage and quotes this game as an illustration.

I would say that the game was not decided by 7.. c6 but by 13...dxc4? and 25...Bd7? (Only the the attempt to simplify by 25...Qd5 would have been worse: 26 Nxf6 gxf6 27 Nxe7 forking)
