  Honza Cervenka: White is definitely bettter in the final position but no direct forced win is in sight. Did black lose on time?
Apr-22-20  TOTHZAHU: I analized this game on lichess and according to Stockfish, the final position fully equal (0,00), thereof I conclude that Flohr must have lost on time - which he quite often did (as I understand). Interestingly, again, according to Stockfish, Bondarevsky's last move (38. Re1?) is a blunder and gives away his lead. Instead, 38. Qg4! would have kept up the pressure, with an evaluation of +1,9, meaning ±

  Telemus: Two of my databases confirm that time was the deciding factor. One gives "%02time" as final comment, and the other one has "$138", which according to the PGN standard means: "White has severe time control pressure".

Do I have to take a look at the tournament book tomorrow? Nah.
