The following game is annotated by former world champion Dr. Max Euwe in his book Bobby Fischer - The Greatest? (Page 138 of the 1979 Sterling edition.) Euwe notes that after 7.d4 the game has transposed to a well-known variation of the French Defense. In the December 2004 issue of Chess Life, GM Benko analyzes the endgame arising after White's 30th move. I've excerpted a couple of his annotations below.
