  Honza Cervenka: The only loss of Flohr in the tournament, which he won in the end, occurred in the 1st round. Flohr with black pieces had clearly better game for most of time, and he was actually very close to winning it but after missing a few of better moves he blundered in the 41st move and lost. For example, 37...Rxd4 38.Qxd4 Bxa2 39.Qxf6 a3 40.Qd4 Bf7 41.Ne3 Re4 42.Qd8+ Kg7 43.Qd2 a2 44.Qc3+ Kg8 45.Rd1 Re8 gives black clearly won game, as 46.c6 Rxe3 47.Qxe3 a1=Q 48.Rxa1 Qxa1 gives black an extra piece, and else white is going to lose Pc5 with hopeless ending.
Mar-31-20  faulty: This miscalculation is definitely strange as Flohr must have had time for move 41; on top of that, he could adjourn while leaving some "safe" move in the envelope. there are a dozen of "safe moves" for black on move 41
