  Sargon: Somebody submitted a correction slip saying "players and result should be reversed." Can anybody confirm this?

  whiteshark: According to BCM, 1958-01, p.13 crosstable Larsen won against Troianescu: http://www.mark-weeks.com/chess/zon... and white is lost in the final position (...Qg5+/...Rg6+), so the game+score looks fine to me. [which is of cource no confirmation].

I also noted that cb megabase showed the reverse result.

May-19-18  Cibator: Three and a half years late, but I can add further confirmation of a sort. Harry Golombek cited this combination in his 1958 book "Instructions To Young Chess Players" (including the fact that White resigned after Black's 27th). He pointed up the similarity in theme with Maroczy vs Tartakower, 1922 (White forces mostly on Q-side, pointing at nothing, and unable to get to the K-side when Black comes storming in there.)
