Jun-28-05  Hidden Skillz: according to chessbase this game was played in tel aviv
Apr-29-06  McCool: This game is incorrect or Schmid missed a major attack on 76. ♖xf5+ ♔xf5 77. ♕h7+ ♔e5(e6) 78.♕h8+ skewers the Queen!
Apr-29-06  geraldo8187: Good line, i kept looking for some kind of refute, but you're absolutely right
Jun-28-07  twin phoenix: nice line Mccool. you're spot on there.

  sfm: 22.e5!! is a very nice move. Black must lose material.
Feb-22-10  percyblakeney: Apart from this game Paul Keres scored +50 -0 =25 in his last six Olympiads, winning team <and> individual gold in all of them except for 1962 (individual bronze).
May-24-12  Anderssen99: Why didn't Schmidt play: 88.Qe6, which is the most accurate (Although the result of the game, however, is a foregone conclusion).
Jan-31-15  jerseybob: The whole West German team was inspired this day, beating the Soviets 3-1.
Jan-31-15  disasterion: <Anderssen99: Why didn't Schmidt play: 88.Qe6>

He probably felt that 88 moves into a game against Paul Keres, he didn't want to give his queen away for nothing.

Facetiousness aside - I presume you mean 88.Qc6 - given that Qd6 as played is winning and caused Keres to resign, I don't see why it matters.
