  sachistu: Although it does not change the result, it looks like the finish given here (22.Bf5 Kd6 23.Qg3+) is incorrect.

The finish was 22.Bc4 Kd6 23.Qg3+ as reported in CHESS, Vol15,#173 (Feb,1950), and in the Swiss magazine Schweizerische Schachzeitung, Feb, 1950, p26. The online Db (Chesslab) also gives this version.

The version given here (22.Bf5) is also given in John Saunders Britbase site. This is usually reliable, but in this case his source apparently had an alternate version.

  fredthebear: 22.Bc4 seems correct.

<sachistu> The finish 22.Bc4! Kd6 23.Qg3+ 1-0 is given in Fred Wilson's book "Simple Attacking Plans" pp. 25-31. Fred notes the best continuation would be 23...K retreat 24.Qg7+ gains Black's unprotected Bb7.

  sachistu: Thanks <fredthebear>. It's always nice to have additional confirmation. I'll submit a correction slip. However, I am curious where Saunders got the finish given here.
Premium Chessgames Member
  John Saunders: 22.Bc4 is definitely right as it is given in all contemporary British sources (BCM, CHESS, The Times, The Chess Bulletin). I suspect I may have sourced the game for BritBase from Mega/Big Database which still have 22.Bf5 etc. I have corrected the game on BritBase and have now uploaded a full page of info for the 1949/50 Hastings tournament

  fredthebear: Thank you for the link <JS>.

Rossolimo finished 2nd in this tournament, a 1/2 point behind Laszlo Szabo. Max Euwe came in third place.

Aug-10-20  Viking707: Rossolimo in his later years opened a chess studio in Greenwich Village, NY. I often went there. He was one of the kindest and most patient men I ever met. He died much too soon from a tragic accident.

  sachistu: Thanks <JohnSaunders>. I see the change has still not been made on this site, but given the events of this year, it may take some time for corrections to be implemented.
