Smyslov remarks after the game:

Smyslov(GM) tells you: Thanks a lot, Smyslov thanks you for the great defense in the endgame.

Question: Does Mister Smyslov has the feeling he missed the win some how?

Smyslov(GM) tells you: May be several times he chose not the best lines, but there was no clear win anywhere.
