  GrahamClayton: Reshevsky plays actively with 12...♗b7 rather than playing the "natural" move {12...0-0), which although regaining the sacrificed pawn, leads to a positional advantage for White, eg:

13.0-0 ♗b7 14.♘e4, or
13.0-0 b4 14.♘e4 ♘e4 15.fe4 f5 16.ef5 ♗f5 17.♔h1

Black regains the pawn after 19..♗d6, and has threats agains the White Knight on g7. White sacrifices the Knight for attacking counterchances, but Black defends well and wins.

  plang: Foguelman played 5 f3 on occasion. Not every player with Black would have invited the complications starting with 13..g6. 18..a4 19 Ne6!..Nxd6 20 Qg5 would have been good for White. 21..Bf8? 22 Bxf8..Kxf8 23 Qh6+..Ke8 24 Nd6+..Ke7 25 Nxb7..Qc7 26 Bxd5..Nxd5 27 0-0-0..Qxb7 28 Rhe1 would have given White a winning attack. A really nice defensive game by Rsshevsky against a clever attack.
