Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-06  dramas79: That's a tight game. Takes guts to play like this when back rank mate is threatened.
Sep-01-09  Crocomule: Keres has a sense of humor!
Feb-18-11  ozmikey: Ha! 31. Kh1 is very cute. "Anything you can do, I can do better." The obvious way of avoiding the mate is by 31. h3 (or 31. h4), but as <Crocomule> says, the move played does credit to Keres' sense of humour.
Feb-18-11  Kazzak: Poor Raud was headed for a sad fate. He was in Buenos Aires for the Olympiad when war was declared. While many other stranded chess players managed to make a living in Latin America, Raud's results were too inconsistent for him to be offered posts as a tutor or slots in attractive tournaments. He died emaciated, of starvation.
Jul-26-13  jerseybob: Black's q-side tactics are fascinating but fail due to lack of development. 14..Ng4 looks fishy; either 14..Bg4 or the solid 14..Be8 look better, anything to get in Nbd7.
