Kibitzer's Corner
May-23-06  Runemaster: Penrose's favourite gambit is busted easily by Smyslov in this game.
Jun-11-06  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 9 Ba3, 9 Qc2 avoids an indirect attack upon White's Q by both ...Bg4 and ...Re8
Dec-28-08  Ulhumbrus: 7...Bxc3? concedes the bishop pair and although it isolates the a and c pawns, it opens the b file and brings the b pawn on to the c file from where it can cover the squares d4 or d5. After 8...Nf6 White may have a considerable advantage if other things are equal and White can count his assets, his bishop pair, advantage in development, greater space, central superiority and the b file. 9 Rb1 develops the piece placed worst, the QR, occupies the b file, and hinders the development of Black's QB.

  Sally Simpson: < Penrose's favourite gambit is busted easily by Smyslov in this game.>

After the game Smyslov told Penrose this line of defence had been played against him by an unnamed Russian in a simultaneous display.

He was so impressed he stored it for later use. (CHESS 326, 1958, page 30)
