  vonKrolock: unfinished symphony !? :) - <39...Qd1+ 40.Kg2 g4!=> computer tested?! - For me it seems that white could be still winning with 41.♖xf6+ etc

  whiteshark: <vonKrolock> Surely unfinished.

After <41.Rxf6+ Ke7> (not 41...Kg7 42.Rg6+ and 43.Rxg4 ) <42.Re6+ Kf8> the perpetual threat (...Qg4+ and ...Qd1+) is still there. And White can't move his king to the queenside due to the skewer threat on the second rank.

Even after <43.Qf2 Ra2!> it's equal.

Apr-27-11  lost again: Schlechter states that he should have played 35.Tb1b2. As regards 39...Qa1+, here is what he writes:"Black could have forced a draw with a surprising combination 39...Qd1+; 40.Kg2,g4!;41.Rxf6+,Ke7;42.Re6+,Kf8;43.Rb6,Ra2!!- ;44.Qxa2,Qxf3+;45.Kg1,Qd1+ etc. this game was played in the last round,had he drawn the game, Schubert would have tied for the last prize."

  GrahamClayton: Schlechter would have to accept a draw after 43...♖a2, as trying to flee the checks by 47. ♔e1 loses the Queen after 47...♕h1+ and 48...♕xh2+.
