Black pieces played in a passive way, and blundered, this game looks like a rapid game from two amateurs, not a clasic from those good players.

If you are going to offer such comments as: <this game looks like a rapid game from two amateurs, not a clasic from those good players.> then you should at least offer some insightful suggestions (if you have any) as to how Keres should have played his position.|

|Sep-14-08|| ||pom nasayao: By playing 26. Bf6, BQueen is caught right in the middle of the board. Here are Black's options to save her: a)26.__ Bxf6 27. Nxf6 losing the knight. b) 26.__ Rxf6 27. Nxf6+ losing again the exchange. or c)26.__Qxe4 27. Qxe4 f5xe4 28. Rxe6--the WB at f6 is already protected by the WR at f1.|
|May-13-10|| ||jerseybob: I think one factor here may be overconfidence. In 1939 Keres was a world title contender, one year removed from AVRO, while Najdorf was..who? Reputation-wise that is? I'd recommend preparing e5 with 9..Qc7. Keres' Ne8 is very passive; 10..e5?! opens the game prematurely, and 14..Be6 is simply unbelievable. There's no perfect 14th move for black, but 14..Kh8, planning 15..f5 and if 16.e5,Nc7 to control e6 might hold. Might.|
