Dec-30-06  Resignation Trap: According to the tournament book of Kemeri 1937, White actually played 40.h4 (not 40.h3) and the game continued: 40.h4 c1=Q+ 41.Rxc1 Qxc1+ 42.Kh2 Qc7 43.Rd5 f6 44.Qxd4 fxe5 45.Qxe5 Rf8 46.Ne4 Qxe5 47.Rxe5 Ra4 48.Kg3 Ra7 49.Kf3 Rb8 50.g4 Ra3+ 51.Kf4 Rh3 52.Kg5 Re3 53.Kf4 Re1 54.g5 Rh1 55.Kg4 Rg1+ 56.Kf4 Rf1+ 57.Kg4 Rg8 58.Re7 Re1 59.Re6 Rf8 60.h5 Rg1+ 61.Ng3 Ra8 62.f6 gxf6 63.Rxf6 Ra3 64.Rf3 Rxf3 65.Kxf3 Kg7 1/2-1/2
Sep-27-08  vwtaylorii: I can't believe it was a draw. Steiner had the win.
Aug-22-16  Resignation Trap: I firmly believe that the score of this game as shown on this site is wrong. If not, it is a sad blunderfest. For example, this position after 58. Re7:

Black allegedly played 58...Re1?? which would allow instant equality with the obvious 59. Nf6+, but White tried 59. Re6 instead. Here's the position after the alleged 63. f6:

Black can win with the obvious 63...Ra3 64. Re8+ Kf7 65. Re7+ Kf8. And, finally, this is the alleged final position in the game:

According to Shredder tablebase, Black has a forced mate starting with 67. Kf4 Kf7 68. Ne2 Re1 69. Nd4 Kg6 70. Nf3 Re2 71. Nd4 Rb2 72. Ne6 Rb4+ 73. Ke5 Rh4 74. Nd4 Rg4 75. Ne6 Rxg5+ and the rest is easy.
