  perfidious: In this game from the final event of his extraordinary career, Keres manages to imbue a quiet position with life in the middlegame after his opponent plays solid moves, which, however, lack a plan.

  FSR: My guess is that Allan, playing a living legend, was freaked out and was trying too hard to play solidly and get a draw.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: A Philidor's Defense Reversed! I used to play this in five-minute chess as a joke; perhaps I should have played this in real games.
