Jan-13-05  suenteus po 147: Savielly should have tried for the draw....
Sep-12-05  Rama: He had the draw on move 27. What got him was the advance 39 ... b4, hitting the c-pawn and hence opening the square d4 for the N-fork.
Mar-07-09  YoungEd: Even as a comparatively older player, Tartakower was able to hang tough against the elite. Faithful to Bird's opening to the end!

  typhoonsub: Black could exploit the fact that a3 Knight is out of play, and aim for the win. Instead of 23...Rd5, black had to play 23...Rh8!. For example 23...Rh8 24.Nhf5+ Kf8 25 Nh4 (or 25. Ne3 Rh5 26. Qf4 Qd7 followed by 27...Rd8)25...Rh5 26.Qd3 Qd7, combining pressure against d3 pawn with a kingside attack with Rd8 or Kg7, Rdh8, etc.
