  Jonathan Sarfati: Strange game. Black had a clear edge by about move 24, and a draw for the asking.
Jun-17-14  jvv: What's important here is that white king is much more active.
Dec-20-17  whiteshark: Upto this game Keres had an impressive <+6 score> only to suffer from fatigue and just get 0.5/3 points from the final 3 games.
