  plang: With 12..h6 the position transposed into the Smyslov variation (9..h6) which is rarely played anymore. The position reached after 16..exd was played in several games in 1988; 17..d3 was new. Bologan had a slight positional advantage with the better bishop and one isolated pawn versus two for Black. He felt that 29 Nb3 (29..Qxc3? 31 Rac1) would have given him a clear plus. Wedberg recommended 30..d5. Black could have equalized with 35..d5 (note that 35..Rxe4 36 Rxe4..Nxe4 37 Ra8..g6 38 Nxd6..Rxb4 39 Nxe4..Rb2 may also be OK for Black) 36 Bxf8..Rxf8 37 exd..Nxd5; instead after 35..g6? White had a clear positional advantage after 38 Bc5!. Beliavsky resigned due to 51..Ng5 52 hxg..hxg 53 Rxf5!..Rxf5 54 g4+..Kh6 55 gxf.
