May-01-05  chess man: Beautiful ending. If 37...Qxd6 then 38.Rxe8 checkmate. Or if 37...Rxe1 then 38.Qf8 checkmate.
May-01-05  chess man: Just a little correction here before anyone corrects me if 37...Qxd6 38.Rxe8 38...Qf8 39.Rxf8 checkmate.

  GrahamClayton: Lilienthal thought that he was going to win a rook with the X-ray attack 36...♖e8, but Smyslov refutes it brilliantly with 37.♕d6!.
Feb-18-18  tigreton: 33 ... Rde8 is not correct, obviously Black would lose the knight after 34 ... Qxe8 with 35. Qxd6. In Smyslov's best games vol. I the score is 33 ... Rfe8.
