AK: White's pieces have turned out to be unprepared for such a swift unfolding of events. The decisive thrust requires regrouping and the supply of new pieces to the K-side.

AK: White was threatening 39

P-B6+ PxP 40 PxP+ NxP 41 B-N5. But without the advance . . . P-B3, Black will hardly be able to manage. Thus 38 . . . P-B3 was better here.

40 R-KR1 QR-KN1

AK: It is vital for the black king to be able to escape to the Q-side without interference. Now White has an excellent chance to resolve the struggle in his favour by 41 P-R3

P-R4 42 Q-R4! N-N3 43 Q-N5! and Black cannot trap the queen since on 43 . . . RxR 44 RxR R-QR1 there follows the deadly P-B6 + and Black has no time for . . . P-B3 because of the manoeuvre N-N3 with attacks on Black's QR4 and QB4. But I bypassed this opportunity and made a not completely unsuccessful move.

AK: The sealed move. Gligoric, as previously, refrains from advancing .. . P-B3. 41 . . . N-N3 loses because of 42 P-B6+ PxP 43 Q-B3 N-Q2 44 N-N3 with the threats B x N and NxP. Also bad is 41 . . . P-R4 42 Q-R4N-N3 43 Q-N5.

42 QrNl N-N3

AK: This is a serious mistake. It is necessary to push the Q-side pawns. White's knight immediately occupies QR5 and the game ends quickly.

45 K-B3

AK: Yet another little stratagem: White's king move frees the second rank for his rooks and opens the KN1-QR7 diagonal for his queen.

46 P-R31

SF: Black's 'late Q-side' (now 'K-side') is fragile, and White opens lines for attack.
