May-27-04  MalibogKantutero: Leonid Stein, whose life was cut short by a stroke/heart attack, was one of the most brilliant of them all. He would have seriously contended for the World Championship. We could have learned more from this genius of a chess player.

  Honza Cervenka: In final position 62.Re8 is followed simply by 62...b4 63.Kf3 b3 etc. White probably overestimated his position or he overlooked something when he played 39.Bd6. 39.Bxa5 Rxa5 40.Nd4 Nc5 41.e5 looks equal.
