Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-05-03  sleepkid: Ok. This is a much better game from Horowitz. I'm sure that when Flohr played 25. ...e4 he thought he was winning (or at least carrying a strong initiative). But Horowitz' inspired 26. Bb6! turns the tables. Flohr has nothing better than to give up the exchange (26. ...Bb2 leads to 27. Qxg4 Nxg4 28. Ng7+ winning back the queen with the exchange.) Good stuff.
Nov-13-04  kostich in time: Flohr also won an excellent game against Horowitz in the first half of the match, which isnt included in your database.

  Domdaniel: It is now: Flohr vs I A Horowitz, 1945
Feb-13-14  RookFile: This is a very modern looking game, a nice slugfest.
Sep-07-14  BwanaVa: Two months after Horowitz died the USCF dedicated the March 1973 issue of Chess Life and Review to Horowitz. It was the first issue of the magazine that I got, and this was the game chosen for the article on Horowitz.
May-03-15  Howard: Didn't Horowitz make the cover of that particular issue ?

  Messiah: interesting game. 24. ...e4 was required, and since Ng7 is impossible (and e7 is not controlled by the knight), Bb6 ideas will not work. however, black is already shaky there.

I think 16. ...e5 was the mistake that started the avalanche. after 16. ...0-0-0 black's camp is not that funny, either, but opening the central lines when your king is stuck there, is, well, a suicide.

also, 10. ...Nd7 seems to be a better alternative to fight for the center.
