  plang: This game transposed into a sharp line of the Symmetrical English (A31-32) which was then completely unknown. 11 b3?! works out poorly, the main line is 11 Bf4 intending Ne5 exchanging off the knight on c6 which is protecting the d-pawn. Gligoric recommended playing for simplification with 13 a3..a5 14 b4..axb 15 axb..Rxa1 16 Bxa1..Nxb4 17 Nxd4 with equality; instead after 13 Ne1..Bg4! White was in serious trouble.
Mar-03-18  Saniyat24: With 26.Re2 White must have thought he got out of jail, but Black's 26...Bd3 made his situation like the saying, from the frying pan to the oven...!
