  Chessical: <37.Qe2?> loses immediately due to the mate threat on <h2>. <37.Ne2> would have been a probable draw.
Mar-19-12  screwdriver: I've got a couple of books by Kotov. This situation it appears white was doing everything in its power to try to go to an endgame which may or may not have been better for white. It just seems like the lucky tactic of the duel threat popped up for Kotov to win this one.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Another example of how far the Soviets had advanced during WW2. In the early 1930s, Kashdan was one of the top players in the world, and especially feared for his endgame skills. But in this radio match, Kotov outplayed him both times in the endgame. Also, Kashdan was famous for his skill with ♗ v ♘, but both time he found himself with ♘ v ♗.
