Jul-03-07  RandomVisitor: 36...Nxf6! 37.Qxf6+ Kh8 and black equalizes.

White should have tried 34.Qg5 for a winning position.

28...Kf8 might have kept black out of trouble.

29...Bg6 30.Bxg6 hxg6 <31.Ng5> goes nowhere (Qh3 or Nd2 are better): f6 32.Ne6 Re7 33.Nf4 Rae8 34.Nd3 Qd6

Aug-13-07  RandomVisitor: Oops... 36...Nxf6! 37.Qxf6+ <Kg8> 38.Bf3 and now:

1: Lajos Portisch - Svend Hamann, Halle 1963
