  whiteshark: White's last move <35.Rgf7!!> is quite beautiful.

It's attacking a pinned piece ♖f6 and is simultaneously creating a mate threat starting with 36.Ra8+. Way too much for the defender.

  whiteshark: If black would have gone for <34...Kf8> instead, than <35.Rgf7+! Rxf7 36.Qh8#> is the finish.

  GrahamClayton: Masterful handling of the doubled rooks on the 7th rank by Szabo.
Dec-16-12  ozmikey: Szabo was in the form of his life at this tournament and produced several outstanding games. Here are a couple of others:

  perfidious: Laszlo Szabo was a formidable player at his best: a strong, professional GM who was not quite in the class of the greatest players, but who had enough to thrice qualify for the Candidates in his prime.
