  plang: The line with 6 Bc4 and 7 N1e2 was played several times in the Tal-Botvinnik matches. 9 h4?! worked out poorly; 9 c3, 9 Bd3 and 9 0-0 were alternatives. 12 Bg5 had been played by Boleslavsky against Sliva at Bucharest 1953. After 12..Qa5+ Boleslavsky went on to win; 12..c5! was Dreev's improvement after which he felt White was in trouble. Dreev was critical of 14 Bxf6? recommending 14 Qb3..Rc8 15 Bd3..Qe5+ 16 Be2 with a small Black edge. A better defense would have been 16 0-0-0..Rxh4 17 Rxh4..Qg5+ 18 Kb1..Qxh4 and Black still has a lot of work to do to win. Black would have answered 17 fxg..with 17..Qe5+ 18 Kf1..Ne4.
