  Honza Cervenka: Bogo punished Tartakower's dubious opening play and won the game in very fine Capablanca-like style. But at the end he almost destroyed his well deserved win by careless 48...c5?, which could have given white good chances to save the game after 49.Rc4! (also 49.Rxg7 b3 50.Rg2 looks like a unnecessary complication, though after 50...Kc7 51.f6 Kc6 black is probably won) while after 48...b3! 49.Rg2 (49.Rb4 Rd6+ and 50...Rb6 ) 49...c5 white can just resign.

  Pawn and Two: <Honza Cervenka> I believe the final moves for this game, in the database, are incorrect.

I reviewed the game's final moves in, "Bogoljubow - The Fate of a Chess Player", and in the following databases: Fritz; 365 Chess; Red Hot Pawn; Chess Lab; & Chess Live.

All of these sources give the final moves for this game as: 46...b3 47.Rxg5 Rd1 48.Rg2 c5 49.Kf7 Rd7+ 0-1

Someone should verify if these moves correspond with the tournament book, and then let us know so a correction request can be made.

Feb-20-12  sneaky pete: Lachaga's tournament book (from 1969) also gives

46... b3 47.Txg5 Td1 48.Tg2 c5 49.Rf7 Td7+

  Honza Cervenka: <Pawn and Two> and <sneaky pete> Thanks, that finish makes much better sense and looks more probable here.
