  GrahamClayton: This game was played in the final round of the tournament. After Maroczy drew with Leonhardt, and Duras defeated Bardeleben, a victory by Schlechter would assure him of first prize. Mieses defended accurately, and after 8 hours play Schlechter offered Mieses a draw, which was accepted.
Sep-20-10  ughaibu: Interesting. Quite a change from the usual Schlechter stories.

  Honza Cervenka: 36...Rc4 was a loss of time. 36...Kd7! looks much better and if 37.b5, then 37...a5 with huge advantage and probably technically won game for black. In game 37...a5 is not so effective for 38.c6!
Apr-17-19  Straclonoor: < 36...Kd7! looks much better and if 37.b5, then 37...a5 with huge advantage and probably technically won game for black.> Yes. Stockfisch confirm this.
