Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-11-07  Tomlinsky: "March 1: This must be the blackest day of Stein's chess career. Stein lost in 40 moves after turning down Hort's offer of a draw on move 11! Hort was depressed at the way his luck had run and only wanted to be away from the torture. His chances of winning two games seemed remote. But Stein's rejection of the draw angered him and he became determined. Stein's counter-offer of a draw a few moves later was brusquely dismissed and Stein lost in 40 moves. Stein was out of the Canidates' series. Reshevsky by drawing and Hort by winning would have the last place."

Sep-22-15  fispok: Hort played a ferociously solid defence, maintaining equality at the midline until stein got overzealous in looking for an advantage.
Sep-13-18  edubueno: Stein falló cuando las tablas le permitían casi clasificarse.
Mar-20-19  woldsmandriffield: Just a very well played game by Hort. In there remaining two career encounters, Stein took the proffered early draw.
