Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-21-05  WMD: "After the first cycle Bogoljubow was leading with 3.5 points, and he had crushed Alekhine (Bogoljubov vs Alekhine, 1942). At the beginning of the cycle, he again outplayed the World Champion and by move 28 he had an easy forced victory, but Bogoljubow not only failed to win, but later blundered a piece in a better position and subsequently lost. He was so completely devastated after that game that the unfortunate Efim Dmitrievich lost all his other games too. His final result was 3.5 out of 10, and 5th place." (Bogoljubow, The Fate of a Chess Player, Sergei Soloviov)

The missed win is 28...Nf5 with the threat of Re4 attacking both c4 and f4 (after Nxe3).

Jul-05-09  whiteshark: A really disastrous game for Bogoljubow.
Sep-25-09  whiteshark: Bogoljubow probably missed that he can't play <47...Qxc1?> due to Bxf7+ (losing Qc1), when he played <45...Qa5?>.
