Dec-09-05  euripides: <paladin> 72 Rxf8 is tempting.
Dec-09-05  paladin at large: <euripides> Oops, thanks.

So because of this check 71...Rg5+ is not possible.

Sep-21-14  Bycotron: Lilienthal had a strong advantage from the opening but he must have been getting tired around move 24. He probably thought he had a sure draw around move 30, but Keres wasn't done fighting! Amazing resourcefulness and accuracy by Keres in this ending.
