  plang: Boleslavsky admitted that 12..Qb6 was too aggressive recommending 12..Nc5 as more solid. Had Lundin played 13 Nb3 he would have had an advantage after 13..Nc5 14 Nxc5..dxc 15 Qc2. 14 b4? made things worse creating too many weaknesses. Finally, after 16 f3?, the dark square weaknesses could not be overcome. 18 Be3 would have lost material after 18..c5! as after the knight retreats either 19..Nxf3+ or 19..Nxc5 will win a pawn.
