Default Double Howler: Smyslov-Petrosian, Zurich 1953

Playing over this game from the great 1953 Candidates Tournament I
noticed an amazing double-blunder by these two all-time greats, both
future World Champions. In this position:

8/p2PB1pk/1p5p/3Q4/2p3K1/2Pn1P2/6PP/4q3 b - - 0 46

Petrosian played 46...Qe5, and Smyslov, apparently mesmerized by its
problem-like beauty, played 47.Qxd3+ cxd3 48.d8Q and the game was
agreed drawn. Annotators praised 46...Qe5 lavishly, but in fact it was
a blunder, and White could have won with 47.Qd6!. Petrosian should
have played 46...Ne5+, which would draw.

According to Bronstein's book of the tournament, no one — not even
any of the all-time great GMs at the tournament — discovered this,
until months later, when a Swedish amateur pointed out 47.Qd6.

My question is: can anyone here tell me who the Swedish amateur was,
and where was his discovery published?

Here's the full game sco

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e3 0–0 5.Bd3 d5 6.Nf3 c5 7.0–0 Nc6 8.a3
Bxc3 9.bxc3 b6 10.cxd5 exd5 11.Bb2 c4 12.Bc2 Bg4 13.Qe1 Ne4 14.Nd2
Nxd2 15.Qxd2 Bh5 16.f3 Bg6 17.e4 Qd7 18.Rae1 f5 19.exd5 Qxd5 20.a4

44.Kg4 Nd3 45.Qd5+ Kh7 46.d7 Qe5 47.Qxd3+ cxd3 48.d8Q ½–½

Just wanted to note that the book is one of the
finest collections of annotated games that I
have ever encountered. I cannot recommend
this one enough.

No, I can't. In fact, now that you ask, it occurs to me that his
name might have been Lars Olsson.

that's what your character references say, when asked to recommend you
for a job: "I cannot recommend this candidate enough". Literally true
in your case, since nobody wants to recommend you.

Such biting wit from our resident imbecile
Ray Lopez who's illusions of grandeur make
him think that he is a grandmaster because
his computer can run Fritz. How will I ever
recover.

Yeah, our Ray really knows how to fling it, doesn't he?

Yes, our Ray really knows how to fling it, doesn't he? But he never
seems to realize that it sticks only to himself.
