  sachistu: The score is not quite complete. Black played 42...f3! as given in Adams book on Boleslavsky (game 164 page 273), which is an English translation of Boleslavsky's book published in 1957. Suetin's book on Boleslavsky (game 82 page 198) also gives this score.

Interestingly, Shakhmatny Bulletin, 1965, Issue 10, page 298 gives a different version starting with 24...e4 (instead of ...Rd8) eventually reaching the game position after Black's 28th move. It deviates again on move 38 reversing the order of moves 38 and 39. Finally, Sh. Bulletin also inserts the moves 42.b4 axb4 before continuing 43.Rd8 f3.

Lastly, the venue should the Moscow Trade Union Spartakiad. I'll submit a correction slip.

p.s. White may not have had time to fully investigate what happens on 37.Qxa5!? for example 37...Qa1 38.Qe1 Qxa2 39.Bxe4! and now either 39...Qxe2 40.Qxe2 Bxe4 or 39...Qxb3 40.Bxc6! As played (e.g. 37.Rd2) White has a passive and worse position.
