  Calli: Whew! I'm tired just playing it over. I hope all 43 rounds of this tournament didn't have games like this. To top it off, Chigorin had to play four more games in a playoff.

133.... e1=Q 134. Bxe1 and there's no reason why white draw rook and bishop vs. rook.

But, the problem is 133... Rh5+ 134. Kd6 Rxa5 135. Rxa5 e1=Q. Black must be winning.
