  Eggman: This was the ninth game (of a scheduled ten) in this candidates quarterfinal match, and Adorjan, trailing by one, seemed poised to even things up. And then, tragically, he played 65...Rc5??, falling into a stalemate swindle. The final game was a draw, allowing Huebner to advance. Adorjan was never again a candidate.

  GrahamClayton: Adorjan thought he was liquidating into a won pawn ending, so 66. ♔h4 must have been a nasty shock.
Jul-22-17  KingG: Ouch. This must have really hurt.
