  Honza Cervenka: Quite eventful game! Tarrasch outplayed Yates in final stage of the game only to let him slip off the hook by repetition of moves instead of instant coup de grace Rg1-g3 in moves 46, 48 or 50. On the other hand, Yates could have won the game too having a clear edge, which he dropped by tempting but weak 32.Rxc8?!, which won two pieces for the Rook but allowed black to launch dangerous counter-attack. After better 32.Rc4 black's situation would be very difficult, if not lost byy force.
Jul-10-17  Straclonoor: <capanegra: You're Right! 50...Rg3! wins on the spot.> 50....hxg4 wins as well

  Bobby Spassky: The only problem with hxg4 is that it is illegal.
Jul-10-17  Howard: "Impossible" would be a better word, but that don't matter.
Jul-10-17  Straclonoor: <The only problem with hxg4 is that it is illegal.> Sorry, I meant 50....fxg4 of course.
Jul-10-17  ChessHigherCat: As an illegal move, 50...hxg4 wins on the spot, too, just not for black. I thought 50...fxg4 looked survivable for white because of 51. Qe4+ Qxe4 52. Nxe4 but Fish Stick thought otherwise after seeing another 24 moves in advance! This just isn't a game for humans anymore. Tiddly-winks anyone?
