  Honza Cervenka: It could have been superb combination but Planinc missed its correct continuation. I think that he should have played 16.Qg3!! g5 17.Ncxb5 Qc5 18.Rxe5 gxh4 19.Qg7 Qxe5 20.Qxh8+ Bf8 21.Nc6 Qf4+ 22.Kb1 Nd5 (22...Bd7 23.Qxf6!! Qxf6 24.Nc7# or 22...Nd7 23.Qf6!! is really lovely.) 23.Nxb8 Qxb8 24.c4 Bd7 25.Qd4 etc.
Oct-04-09  jerseybob: Honza: Just curious, have you seen the game Grefe-Browne from the U.S Chp of 1973? This game is an uncanny precursor to that one, in which Grefe played 12.Qg3 instead of Planinc's 12.Rhe1, and won brilliantly in 21 moves. I'm not saying Grefe's move is better than Planinc's; Grefe-Browne is one of the most complicated games I've ever seen. But you seem unaware of it. Just curious.
