Aug-23-07  wolfmaster: This game is featured in Alburt and Palatnik's book "Chess Tactics for the tournament Player".
Aug-23-07  enderozdemir: So what is the continuation?

  WannaBe: 'ccording to Shredder, 29...dxc5 and black is okay. Did Mikenas saw a ghost? or ran out time?
Aug-24-07  Resignation Trap: I've seen more than one version of the score of this game. This one is probably wrong.
Aug-24-07  Resignation Trap: Aha! Another source gives Black's 23rd move as 23...♕f7 (<not> 23...♖f7), so 29...dxc5 would be met simply by 30. ♖xd7 and GAME OVER.

Of course, if 29...bxc5 then 30.♖a3 is sufficient.

Aug-24-07  wolfmaster: <RT> In my book that is the move. You're probably right and this game score is incorrect.
May-07-08  DWINS: Yes, this game score is incorrect.

In Irving Chernev's "Combinations: The Heart of Chess", there is a black rook on d7 before white makes his 26th move Nb4

Feb-24-11  64rutor: So why don't Chessgames.com correct the game score. HELLO!

You can probably sum it up in one word, resources.

I'd say the chessgames.com game score used to be incorrect, and has since be fixed. From the earlier comments, it looks like the final position used to have black with Qh7 and Rf7, so there was nothing hanging after 29...dxc5.

Oct-04-16  hemy: This game was played in the last round of the tournament. Mikenas won 15 games in a row before this game and had 0.5 point more than Keres. The final score of the tournament:
1. Keres 18 from 19,
2. Mikenas 17.5 from 19
3. Evgeny Zagorjansky 13 from 19.

"Шахматы в CCCP" (Shachmati v SSSR) 1946-06 p.126

Oct-04-16  RookFile: Pretty unbelievable that you could win 15 games in a row and yet not win the tournament.
