  Tabanus: What a game lol.

According to Golombek in The Times 16 April 1977 p. 10, it won the prize for best attack.

  offramp: Kasparov and Spielmann and Larsen always seem to have the savoir-faire to get their bishops aligned on the QN1-KR7 & QR1-KR8 diagonals. I can get one, but usually my opponent stops me getting the other one.

  Tabanus: Sorry, I made a mistake! According to Golombek in The Times 16 April p. 10, it won the prize for <best game>. The <best attack> prize went to Westerinen for Timman vs H Westerinen, 1977.

  moronovich: 5.0-0 ?! Stronger is 5.c3,not allowing a sicilian where Black is close to equalizing already.
