Jun-12-05  Legend: A good fighting game, that ends with a stalemate!
Jun-12-05  PARACONT1: Great end. It HAD to be Keres! I recall he did something almost similar to Fischer during one of their games at Curacao '62.
Nov-22-08  EstonianHunter: 69. Kh1-h2 ...
70. Qg3# and 70.g3# threatens. 69. ... Qe5+ changes nothing... "It's all over," said someone from the onlookers... At that time Keres made a move 69. ... La1-h1!! and opponents shook their hands - stalemate, draw!
