  Mateo: This is a game full of sound moves and furious blunders played by two masters.

26.h4 exd3 <Vidmar gives a question mark to this move. He writes "26... e3!! gewann". But the simple 27. Rf5 holds. There is nothing wrong with the move actually played by Rabinovich.>

38... Rf8? <Gives White the opportunity to break.> 39.d6! cxd6 40.Qd5+ Rf7 41.cxd6 Qd7 42.Rc4 Kf8 43.f3? Rf6? <43... Rf5.> 44.Rc7! Qxd6 45.Rc8+ Ke7 46.Qxb7+ 1-0

Oct-09-14  Kramsalov: Very interesting game, but I do think that durnig a big part of this game a position was equal. The only problem of blacks was a weakness of e5 and f5 pawns.. but with good development, safe king and so on it's not enough to lose.. Vidmar is right I think: 26.. e3 27.Rf5 Qc3 28.Re3 Re3 29.fe Qe1+ 30.Kh2 fg 31.Kg2 Qd2+ 32.Rf2 Qe3 no problems for black.
