  Chessical: Larsen was comfortable and confident playing the black side of the Classical Stonewall, for another example see: W Schmidt vs Larsen, 1971.

Smejkal's play deteriorates significantly at he end of the game, perhaps because of time trouble?

For example, there seems little reason for Smejkal to swap off queens.

After:

<26. Qc7> Bc6 27. g4 exf5 (and not 27... Qxb2? 28. fxe6 Rxf1+ 29. Bxf1 Qb4 30. Qd8+) 28. gxf5 Smejkal would have some advantage.

Furthermore, <33. a3?> and <37. Ke2> are awful blunders for a player of Smejkal's class.
