  Phony Benoni: Simply dazzling, both before and after the queen sacrifice. For instance, note 27...gxh3 28.Re6+ Kxg5 29.f4+! Kh5 30.Be2+ and White captures the queen for nothing.

  whiteshark: The only similar game --> G Natapov vs G Borisenko, 1969, took a completely different run of events.
Mar-18-11  vsadek: Excellent play by, at that moment, 19 year old Keres (his first Olympiad and he was playing at board 1 for Estonia).

35...♔h8 36.♖f8+ ♘g8 37.♖xg8#

  wwall: Keres had already won the Estonian championship before playing in this, his first, international tournament. He won 11 games, drew 5, and lost 3 (65.8% score) for the 5th best score on Board 1.

  ChessHigherCat: Black helped him out, though, with 13...f6. The pin is worthless because white wins back the piece immediately and black's position is shot to hell
