  plang: Averbakh pointed out that 10..Qa5 was a strategic mistake leading to a difficult endgame. Geller recommended 10..Ne5. 15..Be5 cost black several tempi. 15..Kg7 followed by ..e5 was probably stronger. After 28 g4! white got a powerful attack; if 28..Bxh4 then 29 g5 traps the bishop. 35..Rc4 was the only defence against Rh1 and mate but, of course, the ending was quite hopeless.
Aug-08-16  nittanyamerica: After 15. Rd2 what can black do? Everything is so passive and out of whack for black's pieces white can win against anything black does
Jul-10-19  seneca16: After Rd2 black has nothing to do but parry whites threats, if he can. Shrewd for Averbakh to see what a big advantage white would have after the Queen exchange.
