Robson opens with the Queen’s Gambit and Szabo responds with the Slav Defense. After 6. Bh4, Robson is essentially offering a pawn sacrifice which Szabo decides to accept 6. …dxc4 7. …g5!? and 8. …b5 – employing the extremely complicated Moscow Variation. For the sacrificed pawn, white is rewarded with an enduring initiative in the center and kingside that is based on his superior development and black’s weak pawn structure. Szabo began to play inaccurately with 13. …Nxe5?! – committing himself too early and allowing white to focus immediately on a kingside attack. After 15. …Qe7, black was forced to sacrifice his kingside pawns due to dangerous tactics threatened by white associated with an exchange sac for the knight on d7. Robson capitalized on the exposed black king with a precise and rapid attack, leading to Szabo’s resignation after 28. Qh6.
