  An Englishman: Good Evening: I think I know why no one has commented on this game, in which Nezhmetdinov offers the Exchange on consecutive moves--this game becomes baffling as early as 4...Qe7!?, the first instance of this move in the CG database. In the final position, White has just taken one of the Rooks, but if the result is correct, resigned before Black could reply. Or did White lose on time? I can't find a winning line for Black, unless 33...Nxe4 is stronger than I believe it is. What sayeth the monsters of silicon?
Apr-26-14  GumboGambit: Maybe Savon was a Savant in that he saw what the rest of us cannot. The ironic thing is that after the Qe7 novelty, the Queen never strays from that spot. The Old Indian provided very fruitful results for Nez throughout his career.
Dec-05-16  dhotts: Very nice game...I believe the reason White resigned is because of the impending 33...Nxe4 with the threat of 34...Qh4+
Dec-19-17  Everett: Yes, 33...Nxe4 is crushing.
