Feb-22-14  RookFile: Korchnoi probably had the better game in the middle game.
Mar-03-15  poorthylacine: Maybe, but it would be interesting to see how Keres exactly would have made a clear win from the final position?

From the final position, simply 41. Bxe6 Rxd4 42. Qxd4 trades down to an easily winning rook endgame, which would probably be played out after an adjournment.

  perfidious: The game score ending with Black making his 40th move suggests that Korchnoi may well have resigned without seeing his opponent's sealed move.
