Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-08  vonKrolock: An extraordinary fighting game, of epic dimensions, strongly characterized by the rupture <22...e6-e5>!!, a motif with few recorded similar predecessors (like, for instance one by Schlechter vs Showalter in Vienna 1898)

<35...c4-c3> "35...♕e1 forcing a draw"

<38...♕e3+> "38...c2 39.♕xc2 ♕g4+ with a draw"

(both possibilities pointed out by the loser himself)

Jun-09-13  Old King Cole: Pawn muscle is seen in this game where Bondarevsky beats Boleslavsky.
Dec-01-14  Captain Hindsight: Better would have been <47...bxa4> and black would hold out, e.g. <48.Qxa6 Ke7=>
Feb-05-16  whiteshark: What's wrong with <32...Qd2+> which threatens ...Rxf4 or if 33.Kg3 Qc3+ 34. K~ Qxa1
Jul-11-22  ILikeKeres: <whiteshark> My guess is 32...Qd2+ 33. Ne2 Rf2+ 34. Kg3 Qxe2 35. Qc8+ and white infiltrates on the back rank.
Jul-11-22  ILikeKeres: <whiteshark> Whoops! Correct move for white would be 33.Ng2

Complicated endgame for sure!
