Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-03-09  Eisenheim: on move 19 I don't think I would've captured the black bishop so quickly. I probably would've played here 19 nxe7+, qxe7, 20 Bf6 Qe6, then re-capture and advance the e pawn. just an idea
Oct-03-09  chillowack: That looks like a good idea too Eisenheim, and I'm sure Keres considered it.

My guess is, he didn't want to part with the powerful knight so soon.
