  Honza Cervenka: 11...b5?! was too committal way to cover the Knight. Instead of that 11...Qa5 12.c4 (12.Bc1 0-0 =) 12...Nb4! would have given black roughly equal game. Lasa exploited weaknesses produced by black in the opening with great energy. 19.cxd5 was fine but 19.Nf5!! would have been much more forcible, for example 19...Qxc4 20.Rfe1+ Kd7 (20...Kf8 21.Qg3 Rh7 22.Bxd6+ cxd6 23.Qxd6+! with mate.) 21.Re7+ Kc8 22.Nxd6+ Rxd6 23.Bxd6 cxd6 24.Qf5+ Kd8 25.Rxb8+ Kxe7 26.Rb7+ with mate or 19...dxc4 20.Qe3+ Kd7 21.Bxd6

<> Black was Karl Schorn of Berlin Pleiades.
