  Honza Cervenka: 36.Be2 was a blunder.
May-20-03  Rookpawn: White had no choice, though. Moving it to c6, b7, and a8 lead to checkmate after: 36... Qh3+ 37. Kg1 (or Kh1) Rd1+ etc. If white moves the bishop elsewhere, the bishop or other important material would be lost.

  Honza Cervenka: 36.Qc6 seems to be possible.
May-20-03  suenteus po 147: If 36.Qc6, then you have to face 36...Nd5! You can try 37.Qe8+ Kh7 38.Qe4!? but then 38...Qxe4 39.Bxe4 Nxc3 and you're down a whole piece against a rook. And if you break the barrier with 37.Bxd5 then you face 37...Qh3! and 38...Rd1#. My theory about the blunder is 25.gxh4. Better would be 25.g4, or heck, even Qxh4.

  Honza Cervenka: <suenteus> After 36.Qc6 Nd5?? 37.Qe8+ Kh7 38.Be4 white wins the Queen and, of course, also the game.

  matey: 14.Rac1 leads to White either having to give up the bishop pair after ...Ng4, or to what happened in the game, 15.Bd2, and Keres gets a double attack and picks up a pawn.
May-20-03  suenteus po 147: Honza, you're absolutely right! I guess I'm still just a coffeehouse player...
