  Honza Cervenka: 38...Kd7 39.Qd4+ or 38...Kc7 39.Qe7+ wins one of black Rooks.
Oct-15-16  zydeco: Why not 14....Qxg2?

The queen proves superior to two rooks.

I was surprised Keres didn't play 29....bxa5. I guess he was afraid of the connected passed pawns in the center but the advanced passed a-pawn turns out to be very dangerous. 30.Qxa5+ Kc8 or Kb7 looks a little safer for black than the game continuation.

38...Rc5 is a blunder. I guess black should play 38...Rc6.

  Zenchess: Because 14...Qxg2 15. e4 Rd8 16. d5 exd5 17. Qf4 yielded a strong attack for White. I guess Keres, one of the strongest attackers of his generation, could see that easily.
