  Honza Cervenka: I guess that after 50.Qe8+ and 51.Qxg6 the win of white is fairly simple task.

  Benzol: <Honza> The score of this game appears to be incomplete. "Paul Keres Photographs and Games" gives the further moves 50.Qe6 Kd3 51.Qd7 Ke2 52.Qe7 Kd3 53.Qa7 Qg4 54.Qe3 Kc4 55.Qc5 Kd3 56.Qe3 Kc4 57.Qc5 Kd3 58.b5 Qe4 59.Kh2 Qa8 60.Qc6 Qa2 61.Kg2 g5 62.b6 gxh4 63.Qf3 1-0

  Pawn and Two: <Benzol> The Soviet tournament book for the XIX U.S.S.R. Championship, confirms that the add'l moves, (moves 50-63), that you have indicated for this game are correct.

  Benzol: <Pawn and Two> I have submitted a correction slip. Thanks for the confirmation, I'm sure <Honza> will also appreciate it.


BTW can you tell me when Round 11 of this tourney played? My Keres book has a glitch in it so I'm unsure when Round 11 was played.

  Pawn and Two: <Benzol> Round 11, games 91-99, was played on December 2nd.

The struggle for 1st place was very intense in this tournament. After 11 rounds Botvinnik, Geller and Smyslov led with 7 1/2 pts., Keres was next with 7, Averbakh and Taimanov had 6 1/2, and three other players had 6 pts.

Everything was set up for an exciting tournament finish. One of the players with 6 pts after 11 rounds was Petrosian. In the last 6 rounds of this tournament Petrosian scored 5 wins and a draw, finishing in 2/3rd place, tied with Geller, only 1/2 point behind the tournament winner Keres.

Jun-16-15  zydeco: Keres wins from a very equal-looking middlegame.

I guess 22....b6 is a wasted tempo - black probably should have been more aggressive in challenging the d-file.
