Mar-01-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Duras was finely outplayed by young Cohn here.
Jan-14-09  SVarden: The final 34 e4 seems perfectly sound and leads to Black's resignation, but why not 34 NxR, QxQ, 35 Ne5+ regaining the queen?
Mar-01-10  uscfratingmybyear: SVarden- white has mate coming starting with Qf5 which stoppable only with 34...Qxe4. Perhaps Cohn, being a surgeon, preferred the scapel over the grenade. Balck could also play 34...Rd5 to slow the mate but when it takes moves like that it's time to kick it over.

  zydeco: After 34.Nxd7 black still has some tricks with 34....h2+. White canít sidestep to a light square. Heíll win after 35.Kxh2 or 35.Kf2 but with 35....Qxd7 black still has ideas involving ....Rh8 and ....Qh3.
