Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-05  schnarre: The opening went well for White, but the final position looks like a time loss: 39. Rg7+ Kh8?? 40. Nf7# wins for White but 39...Kf8! 40. Ng6+ Ke8 41. Re7+ Kd8 gives Black the win.
Nov-24-05  EmperorAtahualpa: <schnarre> After analyzing the final position with Crafty, the game looks drawish to me.

The first suggestion Crafty gives are just repetitious moves: 39.Rg7+ Kf8 40.Rf7+ Kg8 41.Rg7+ etc.

If 39.Rg7+ Kf8 40.Nd7??, then 40...Ke8 41.Ng3 Qd6 42.Re7+ Qxe7 43.Bxe7 Bxe7 44.Ne5 Bxa3 45.Ng4 Bc1 46.Ne5 winning for Black (-8.62 / depth=12)

On the other hand, if 39.Rg7+ Kf8 40.Rf7+ Ke8??, then 41.Re7+ Kd8 42.Nf7+ Kc8 43.Ned6+ Qxd6 44.Nxd6+ Kd8 45.Rxa7+ Bxf6 46.Rxa8+ Kd7 47.Nb5 Rd1 48.Rb8 Bd8 49.Kg3 Bc7+ 50.Nxc7 Rd3+ 51.Kf4 Kxc7, giving a slight advantage to White (+0.63 / depth=13).

Perhaps the .pgn-file is wrong and in reality a draw was agreed?

Feb-07-06  schnarre: Possibly!
Oct-25-07  crafty: 39. ♖g7+ ♔f8 40. ♖f7+ ♔g8 =   (eval 0.01; depth 17 ply; 750M nodes)
Oct-25-07  whiteshark: <38...Bf4!!> would have been the winning move. It secures g7 and attacks ♘e5 and threat now d1♕.

Still unclear if the result (1-0) is correct.

Any update on this?

Nov-12-08  wouldpusher: Velimirovic's mistake seems to be 19. ♗c6?, in which case 19. ♘c6! ♕f6 20. a4 ♗xc6+ 21. ♗xc6 ♕xc6+ 22. ♔g1 ♕g6 23. ♖e2! and Black's attack seems to have died down.
May-21-09  WhiteRook48: the result being 1-0??
Mar-04-10  Mate Hunter: Interesting outcome of 1.a3 b6.

Any update on the score, anyone?

Jun-01-11  Stjef: According to the russian magazine 64 Chess Review (issue 43, 1979), black lost on time after playing 38. - d1Q.
Apr-11-14  Nova: What an interesting game between two great attackers!! And what an interesting start! 1. a3! I wonder if Planinc was expecting this?
Apr-11-14  john barleycorn: More like catch-as-catch-can.
