  Whitehat1963: Isn't there a perpetual check here somewhere?
Dec-01-03  fatbaldguy: Even if there weren't a perpetual check, why is black lost after g:f5? Is it all that clear that the white h pawn will win the race to queen over the black a pawn?
Jun-18-08  suenteus po 147: This game is a move for move duplicate of Gligoric-Kaplan, 1972 played in San Antonio, Texas (not yet in the database). Is there any confirmation that this is the game that Smyslov played at Las Palmas?
