Wow, so this is the game in which Keres introduced this plan against the King's Indian.
|Dec-29-05|| ||KingG: Very instructive game.|
|Jun-12-11|| ||Breyannis Nektarios: In fact, this is not the stem game.
Keres-Matanovic, Moscow 1963, is the one.
As for the game, I think a competent mythbuster may prove someday that in fact the position is not at all bad for Black after the simple 23...Qd7 (instead of the dreadful 23...Bg6). Indeed, it may even be clearly better for him!
He will exchange rooks on the f-file, has a protected passed pawn, pawn on d5 is weak, white knight (h2) on the rim...
|Mar-21-12|| ||Anderssen99: Probably Keres, who strove for artistic moments in his games, planned the fabulous mating position that follows: 36. ...,Kh8. 37.Nf7+,Kg8 (...,Kg7. 38.h6+,Kg8. 39.Nd8+,Kh8. 40.Rxf8+ mating). 38.Nd8+,Kg7. 39.Qf7+!!,Kh8. 41.Qxf8+,Qg8. 42.Rh6+,Bh7. 43.Nf7 mate!!|
