Jul-22-04  Whitehat1963: Clever finish in the opening of the day. Puzzle?

  Gypsy: This, of course, should be a Keres' win, not Bogoljubov's.

  Calli: This game is not from the Salzburg 1942 or 1943 tournaments. Anybody have information?

  Benzol: <Calli> The game is from the Salzburg Tournament but Keres' opponent was Klaus Junge. It was played in the 2nd round on the 10th of June 1942.

  Calli: <Benzol> Excellent! I only looked at my Bogo file and didn't see it at all. Very nice that someone on Chessgames always has the documentation and is willing to research an error. Thanks.
Dec-22-09  lost in space: White was not able to get anything out of the opening. The game was over a long period of time slightly better for Black;

But after move 30. the advantage of Black should have been disappearing: 31. Re3 Ba8 32. exf6 Rxf6 33. Ne5 c4 and the game is nearly even; maybe a small edge remaining for Black due to his queen side pawn majority.

White moves 31. Nd6? and 32. Rxc5?? are losing quickly
