  Honza Cervenka: Quick and sad end of black's attack. If 19...Qh1+ 20.Kf2 Qxa1, then 21.Bc3
Feb-01-04  lordhazol: There is a lot of material threats white king but not effective.Strange ending position.11...Bd4 was wrong move but not easy to find at the game.
Apr-04-04  nikolaas: An important game for me. I made one of my first problems after replaying this game. I thought I could let Black win but it didn't work so I made a problem with my idea.

  keypusher: From <Resignation Trap>'s account of this tournament on his forum:

<Filip followed published analysis by the East German correspondence player Gerhard Gunderam, and unfortunately, Szabo was unaware of this. The Hungarian Grandmaster entered a faulty continuation starting with 11...Bd4+, which, at first blush, looked attractive, as Black gets an attack on the opposing king with his queen and knight. The danger was an illusion, and ultimately it was Szabo's king that proved unsafe. He resigned after only 19 moves.>
