  plang: Alexei Suetin wrote an article in British Chess Magazine where he talked about Alekhine and Boleslavsky as being among the first great players to play speculative gambits. This game is an example of Boleslavsky sacrificing a pawn in the opening for a lasting initiative. Makogonov appears to be hanging in there until 34..gh?
