I loved his play, often a mix of fighting positional ideas. He is a good model for those of us who are older, very strong player who sometimes showed the up and coming GMs that an old dog can learn new tricks and knows some devilish old ones.

I never understood his playing style but loved his fighting spirit, especially in his matches with Karpov when his family was being virtually held hostage.
