Knowing that I had a system prepared against already-published variations, he would try to get away from the theoretical, in order to see how confidently I played without benefit of precise analytical preparation. 43 Position after 1 4 0-0 14 . . NcS is more exact - a maneuver White now prevents. Here is how the practice game with Ragozin continued : 1 5 b4 �o 16 Re l Bb7 A necessary maneuver, to bring the bishop to an active position. 17 Bf4 With his last two moves, White has secured a key point : the central square e S .
Here, perhaps, White could have played better with 3 3 Rd 3 Rc8 34 RdS c4 3 S bxc bxc 36 Kfl Kf7 ! ( 3 6 ... c3 37 Rd l ! is a draw, since the c pawn is lost) 3 7 Ke2 Ke6 38 RaS , when a draw would be quite likely. Rf•c8 Kg•f7 . Kf7·e6 33 .... 34 Kg2·f3 3S Kf3·e3 36 f2·f4 The onset of time-pressure somewhat spoiled this phase of the game ; other wise, however, we would have lost a valuable endgame!

Prior to this, Black usually took in the center: 8 ... cxd ; but after 9 Rd l , White has n o difficulties developing his queen's bishop. Black will meet 9 dxc with 9 ... Ne4. Qd8-c7 9 Rfl·dl 10 Nbl·c3 In a game with Keres ( Leningrad 1 941 ), I played 10 h 3 , which is not a necessary move here. 0 10 1 1 b2·b3 •••• 1 1 dxc looks dubious here : 1 1 ... BxcS 1 2 h3 ( 1 2 e4 Ng4 ! ) NeS 1 3 NxeS Qxe S, etc.
