  Marius: doesn't 10. ... c4 wins the light bishop?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Willem Wallekers: As it does on move 11. Strange.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Marius: tell Willem Wallekers

Yes very funny but normally, you can't hope that the opponent miss a move so my question is why did Keres not play it on move 10

Premium Chessgames Member
  Marius: you know <Willem Wallekers> Norvid could have play his Knight again on move 11 to avoid the loss of the piece
Premium Chessgames Member
  Willem Wallekers: Yes I know, that is what makes it so strange.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Marius: perhaps Keres missed it on move 10 or
he saw he was late in development..
Could someone give me a explication ?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Willem Wallekers: I am as puzzled as you are.
Nov-01-07  RookFile: Well, I have a book on all of Keres' games, and it does agree with the game score given here. My guess is that both players were blitzing out their early moves, and then suddenly Keres wondered where exactly that bishop is supposed to go after ...c4.
