The Master Game: Larsen – Schmid

Here’s one that I missed so it was nice to catch up after three decades. In this one we get to see the great Bent Larsen explain his thoughts and Schmid blunders in what should have been an OK position.

The commentary was insightful as always but I wish that Jeremy James knew to pronounce Gligoric’s name as ‘GligoRITCH’ rather than ‘Gligorik’. And on the subject of pronunciation note that Max Euwe’s surname is pronounced ‘ERVER’ rather than ‘yuw’.
