  An Englishman: Good Evening: I think I know why no one has commented on this game, in which Nezhmetdinov offers the Exchange on consecutive moves--this game becomes baffling as early as 4...Qe7!?, the first instance of this move in the CG database. In the final position, White has just taken one of the Rooks, but if the result is correct, resigned before Black could reply. Or did White lose on time? I can't find a winning line for Black, unless 33...Nxe4 is stronger than I believe it is. What sayeth the monsters of silicon?
Apr-26-14  GumboGambit: Maybe Savon was a Savant in that he saw what the rest of us cannot. The ironic thing is that after the Qe7 novelty, the Queen never strays from that spot. The Old Indian provided very fruitful results for Nez throughout his career.
Dec-05-16  dhotts: Very nice game...I believe the reason White resigned is because of the impending 33...Nxe4 with the threat of 34...Qh4+
Dec-19-17  Everett: Yes, 33...Nxe4 is crushing.
Jul-31-19  Bobo2002: Dios mio! Este Maestro,debió ser un avanzado de la combinación. Despues de la sonora jugada 32...Txc3!, comienza el juego ganador de Netz. Veamos, porque Savon queda perdido en pocas jugadas: Si 33 Dxc3,Cxe4.34 Dc1, no se ve nada mejor ...34 ...Dh4 jaque, éste es le jaque, que dá la razón de ser a la combinación en ésta y en otra variante. 35 Rd1, Tf3!36 Dc7 jaque,Rg8.37 f6,Dxf6.38 Dc8 jaque,Rh7.39 Th1 jaque, Ah6.40 Axf4.exf4!.41 Dd7 jaque,Dg7.42 Df5 jaque,Dg6.43 Dd7 jaque,Rg8.44 De6 jaque, Dxe6.45 dxe6,Cf2 jaque.46 Rc2,Cxh1, y las negras se aseguran un ventajoso final. En la posición final de la partida, el próximo movimiento de las negras hubiese sido 33 ...Cxe4, y realmente no se ve una buena respuesta del blanco.
Jul-31-19  Bobo2002: Veamos, un pequeño desastre final: 33 ...Cxe4.34 Af1,Cxd2.35 Rxd2,Cxd5.36 Txg4,Tc2 jaque.37 Rxc2,Cxe3 y está todo dicho.
