  JOE45: You're down a pawn, your King is exposed & you refuse a chance to claim a draw by repetion on move 46? What was Panov thinking?

  Phony Benoni: Under current rules, either side had a chance to claim a triple repetition of position; Black before playing 45...Rg2, or White before playing 46.Re2.

In the Soviet Union in 1934, the rules may have been different. For instance, if the rule stated that the same sequence of moves must be repeated three times, a repetition would not exist here since Black's first move in the sequence was ...Rg6-g2, not ...Rg1-g2.

  Domdaniel: Both players rejected a draw by repetition.

Then again, my computer suggests that a draw by repetition is available in the final position. Which can't be right, as the win is elementary.
