  Honza Cervenka: Black could win the exchange for pawn playing 20...Bc4 (If 21.Qxc4, then 21...Rd1+ etc. and if 21.Bd5, then 21...Bxe2) but it is difficult to say whether it would have been sufficient for winning the game or not. 31.Qg4 (31.Bxc1=) was a terrible blunder. Keres overlooked 31...Rh1+! 32.Kxh1 Qd1+
Apr-03-10  Fanques Fair: Nice game ! Keres forced too hard in a dangerous position. I´d like to hava an analysis...
