  profK: Larsen's two Q side pawns didn't carry the day. How white gets a lone pawn on the K side with a minority of 3 to 5 is amazing!

  OhioChessFan: 42...Nd4 was an idle threat. 42..e4 was called for.
May-28-16  Howard: Browne states in The Stress of Chess that he "missed a couple of clear wins" around the 30th move...whatever that means.

with double threat on f3 and e5

He was still winning with the move he chose 30...Ba3 31 Rd1 when 31...Qe3+ works again, but 31...Bc5 throws it away.
