  Fusilli: Of course Unzicker doesn't take the h4. There's nothing decisive against doing so (in fact, the computer sees only equality after 15...Bxh4), but in practical chess, you just know you don't take that pawn. Not against a player like Larsen anyway.

The odd 22...fxg6 instead of the natural 22...hxg6 seems to mark the beginning of real trouble for Black.

Nov-26-19  Granny O Doul: 16. d5 would be enough to dissuade me from 15...Bxh4, though my faith in the computer is fervent and abiding.
