Jan-27-05  ossolinskm: What was Larsen thinking playing 15..PxP??

Exposing the king like that is a terrible move.

  geezerbloke: I agree that opening the g file against donner will ultimately result with you being skewered like a kebab.
Feb-10-09  paavoh: A funny opening by Donner 4.Bd3?! Larsen did not want to mix it up by playing c5-c4 and offering to exchange the c4 pawn for e4 pawn.
Sep-08-20  Albanius: 13..Qh4 ^ 14 Nf3?? Ng3# is met by Ne2 defending g3 and hitting Bd4.
