|Apr-29-04|| ||capanegra: Well gentlemen, Iíve seen it all: a top international grandmaster misses a mate in one. |
|Apr-29-04|| ||iron maiden: At least Gligoric still won the game. He could've been in time trouble though; the mate's a little hard to see in a split second. |
|May-01-04|| ||vonKrolock: this was not an unique event, even vice-World Champs comited an equal misfire (althought in all cases the games were completely won at last...): see Korchnoi-Mecking, Augusta 1974, game 13th, and Schlechter-Mieses, Leipzig 1894 PS: The Gligoric-Book is a wonderfull fighting game, and curiosly,whith 34.Rd8!!
(a fine echo from 29th move...) Gligo had a forced mate in six... |
|May-01-04|| ||capanegra: Wow, <vonKrolock>, I didnít knew there so many blindness of this kind. Iíve recently started a collection of overlooked mates. If anybody knows any cases, I would appreciate if you let me know. |
|May-01-04|| ||vonKrolock: capanegra: a good practical player dont care much about "shortest mates" in the same way as, say, a problemist, so missed quick mate sequences are not so unusual (off course that mates in 1 or 2, it's an oddity)... about Schlechter-Mieses Leipzig 1894, i can try to explain that S. was a youngster (his first Int T.), that he was somewhat nervous and evidently short of time... PS: saudaÁűes curitibanas |
|Apr-16-05|| ||lopium: I'm too weak too see the mate in one. Black mate white? I can't see it. Please, tell the move, at least! |
|Apr-16-05|| ||tpstar: 32 ... Kxd8 33. Bf6#. |
|Apr-23-05|| ||Karpova: Richter said: "Always give check, it could be mate"
Gligoric did give check (33.rd1+) but...
|Dec-27-05|| ||syracrophy: Nobody needs to be a grandmaster to see the simple and definitive 33.Bf6++|
|Jan-15-09|| ||WhiteRook48: white got a Book win.|
|Feb-25-09|| ||WhiteRook48: why did Gligoric not mate in 1?|
|Sep-13-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 33 Bf6# is so obvious, even after being away from this game for five full months|

Gliga missed mate-in-one with 33.Bf6#
|Aug-13-11|| ||ozmikey: An incredible miss. Given the complexity of the game prior to that, I'd imagine Gligo was in pretty severe time trouble...you would hope that's the explanation, anyway!|
Later, it looks like Black missed good drawing chances with 43...Bc5+ instead; after 44. Ka4 Qd4+ 45. b4 Qb2! (not 45...Nc3+? 46. Kb3 and the checks run out) White will have to give up his rook to make progress, viz. 46. Qc6+ Kf7 47. bxc5 Qxa2+ (again, 47...Nc3+ 48. Ka5 lets the White king escape) 48. Kb4 Qb2+, and to avoid the perpetual White must allow 49. Ka5 Qc3+, after which he still has plenty of work to do.

My recollection is that David Levy wrote on this in his collection of Gligoric's games, and it wasn't time shortage at all-wish I could recall exactly what reason he gave, though!
