  fredthebear: 25.Nd5! Halt thy mouse and examine matters. Yep, makes sense. Black needs his light-squared bishop at Bc6 to help defend b7.

29.Nf4! Whoa! The hot-footed White knight is immune. Very logical.

Very nice sequence of exchanges. The leaping White knight gets his rook fork. Arrangements are made for the last White rook to penetrate and create connected passers.

Artful planning by Keres with nice surprises! The knight caught Fredthebear's eye, but all the White pieces smoothly contributed. How many of us would have missed the generic-looking embossment 38.Rf7?
