  Gypsy: This seems as a theoretically important game. It looks like Smejkal walked right into Kozma's prepared trap. Since this database shows only this one French for Kozma, there probably is a good story behind this game.
Oct-16-04  notsodeepthought: Maybe, but it seems that white could have claimed the draw by three-fold repetition by playing 23 Qb5, so it's not clear whether Kozma was all that happy with how his trap panned out.

  Gypsy: Kozma was was playing some 200-250 Elo points up. He would have been happy even with a black draw, I think.
