Nov-25-11  ForeverYoung: This and his game vs. Yates from Karlsbad 1923 feature his taking command with Qd6! Both games deserve to be better known. The great master points out with 26 Ngh5 he threatens 27 Nxg7! with a mating attack if 27 ... Kxg7.
Nov-25-11  ForeverYoung: A slight error on my part. The game was not vs. Yates (which is one of his most famous defeats) but vs. Sir George Thomas.
