Nov-20-12  ughaibu: White's 18th move is a real surprise. I don't think I've seen this theme elsewhere.
Feb-01-18  Granny O Doul: For all the times Horowitz published the other game in this match (which he won), he did include this game in "Personality of Chess" under the title "Flohr's Fatal Gift of a Bishop".

But...should Black not have snagged White's KB with 10... Nb4?
