Feb-22-17  Marmot PFL: 32...Qc5 gives black good chances for a successful defense.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: In "How to Win in the Chess Openings" by I. A. Horowitz, this game is presented as a brilliancy. In fact, according to The Computer, after 32..Qc5 or even 32..Qa7, white's game is hopeless. I wonder if Flohr reanalyzed this game later on and found out how he might have lost this. Maybe it was one of the reasons that he became such a drawing master later in life.
May-19-22  Retireborn: Megabase 2021 puts this game in the Prague Evony tournament, which according to Jimmy Adams' book was a 16 player Prague city championship.

I do not know if this is correct, since according to Adams there was another Prague (non-Kautsky) tournament that year.

Further information welcomed.

Seems to me that Flohr would then have had a perpetual with 33.Qg5+.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <perfidious--Seems to me that Flohr would then have had a perpetual with 33.Qg5+.> There is a white pawn on g5 that prevents the queen from going there on move 33.

  perfidious: <GSM>, the dirty wretch had one helluva nerve being there; guess I should stop analysing sans voir.

  NM JRousselle: Black can avoid all the complications by the simple 26... Bc5.
