  sachistu: The score is not quite correct here.
First, Black played 12...Nc6 (not ...Nbd7). However, Szabo likely would have still continued 13.Nh3 (!? Szabo) when after ...Ne5 the same position is reached.

The second error in the score is 25...Rdc8 (which allows Bxa8!). The move was ...Rac8. See 'My Best Games of Chess' by L.Szabo p.129. The current score probably came from Chessbase which had a number of errors in the games from this tournament. I'll submit a correction slip.

Wow. It seems that your two corrections have been done already - quick work!

Well done,

  sachistu: I agree <offramp>. The cg admin team has already implemented corrections to 3 other games from this tournament. Thanks!

  sachistu: Thanks CG admin...I saw the two errors in the Chessbase version, but did not notice the 3rd! As your team saw, 36...Ra6 was also incorrect. The version I had was 36...Rd6 as it is also shown in Szabo's book. Thanks again for the additional correction.
