  tamar: I have an old copy of Pillsbury's Chess Career. After 41...h4+ there is penciled in "leaving an endgame and an easy win."

No! It is mate after 42 Kxh4 Rg2 and the mate can only be delayed for a few moves even with 43 Rh5 to prevent 43...Rh8#

Apr-23-07  LIFE Master AJ: To answer an e-mail, I think that I annotated this game on my website ... some time back. (
Nov-28-07  sanyas: Examine your opponent's plan, I always say. I pity the fool.
May-07-14  LIFE Master AJ: This would make a great GOTD ... prolly a few POTD's in there, somewhere.
Dec-05-18  HarryP: Both the tournament book and Sergeant and Watts say 29. Kg2 is bad. Much better would have been 29. Rd1.
