Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-27-06  Maynard5: White plays a series of inaccuracies here. The aggressive 9. Ne5 achieves nothing, and concedes Black the two bishops. Subsequently, 18. Qf3 results in some short-lived complications, in which White emerges down a pawn. Preferable is 18. Ne5, to try to exchange the knight for Black's light square bishop.
Jul-30-09  AnalyzeThis: This looks like a really complex game.
Oct-23-10  uscfratingmybyear: I find 46...e4 just a stunning move.
Mar-29-13  Conrad93: Paul Keres played this gambit pooorly.
Feb-26-16  peterh99: I wonder what Keres hoped to achieve by giving up the pawn? Later, 46 e4 is a amazing coup as another commenter mentioned.
Nov-23-18  cehertan: Id call this fairly routine super-gm technique and exploiting pks Inferior opening. Even one of the Steiner match wins stands out more for me, though fines record against top players is a tremendous testament to his strength (notwithstanding his fits against nemesis reshevsky). As he was still a young man when he quit who knows how far he could have gone.
