Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-22-08  openningspecialist: This position isn't that resignable. Qd5 snatches a pawn back and really only a pawn down its often not that hard 2 fine pertepetual.
Jul-22-08  MaxxLange: Winning the a pawn will not help much. 36...Qd5 37 h4 Qxa2 38 h5, etc., looks like to me
Jul-22-08  MaxxLange: Huh, is how I type that maybe? I mean, White is winning.

Black also had to consider his postage stamp costs...

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <EstonianHunter>, in his book The Art of Attack in Chess, Vukovic gives 20...Nf8; 21.Qh5+,g6 as a win for Black. This is why White has abandoned the Moller Attack.
Feb-20-13  backrank: According to Reinfeld (Keres' Best Games of Chess), Black resigned after 31 Qf5+.

The remaining moves seem to be a variation. I doubt Keres would have played 36 Qxg7 instead of the stronger 36 Qxd6.
