  Gypsy: <86.Qf3??> Drops the win. Maroczy relates that after this move, Charousek offered a draw. When Walbrodt rejected angrily, Charousek played the next move ... <86...Qe1+!!>.

Instead, 86.Qe1! wins for White after 86...Qc2+ 86.Kf1+ Kh3 87.Qe3+ Kg4 88.Qe2+... (88...QxQ 89.KxQ and 90.a5); or 86...Qf6 87.Qh1+ Kg4 88.Qf3+ Kh4 89.Qg3+ Kh5 90.Qg5+...; or 86...Qxb3 87.Qe7+ Kh3 88.Qe3+...

Oct-17-08  Sololoy: The annotation must be wrong: 30 ... Qe4 gives the queen up to 31 Nf6+; And after 31 g3, Black has Qh1++. Therefore the correct move must have been 30 ... Qe5+
