Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-08-03  Rookpawn: Black could have played 35... Ra7, giving him a better chance of saving the game.
Jun-06-04  Poohavez: 35...Ra7! guarantees a draw.
Jun-06-04  maoam: After 35. ...Ra7 36. Rd8+ Bf8 37. Rxb2 isn't White winning? If not, could you explain how Black can draw?
Jun-06-04  Poohavez: <maoam> Thanks, there was a typo. Drawing move is 36...Ra7! 37.Rf7 Bc5! (not 37...b1=Q?! because of 38.Rxf8+ Kxf8 39.Rxb1)
Jun-06-04  maoam: <Thanks, there was a typo.> No problem; I thought I might have missed something obvious :).
Aug-26-05  RSD770: Bronstein writes that the reason that boleslavsky missed ♖a7 was because the game was played at 2:00 AM (i.e. it was dark and late etc.) due to the fact that Reshevsky would not play on the Sabbath.
Jan-08-06  Breyannis Nektarios: 36.Rd8! wins (Bronstein)
