  Chessical: Hoelken plays unambitiously, whilst Tartakower eager to win takes chances which lead to his disadvantage. In sight of victory Hoelken throws it all away with two sucessive blunders.

24...Qe7 25.Be2=

27....Qe6? losing control of the back rank, 27...Qe7 28.Bf3 b5 29.Rxf8+ Rxf8 keeps Black in the game.

29.Kh2? There appears nothing wrong with 29.Bxd1 Rxf5 30.Qd8+ Kh7 31.Bf3

30.Qd8+?? a blunder perhaps this was the time control? 30.Qc7 Rdf1 31.Bxf5 Qxf5 32.Rxc4=

Nov-22-03  FeArMySkiLLz: Very good play
Jun-14-04  mynameisrandy: Uh, yeah. I'm gonna go ahead and say Qd8+ was a blunder. One of the worst bluders I've ever seen...
Apr-06-09  squizz: Qd8+ is one of the worst blunders I've ever seen.
Apr-06-09  Calli: <30.Qd8+??> I give him a break here. Note that if he takes on f5 then Qd6+ wins. He simply didn't see the saving Qc7 and threw in the towel in a joking manner.
Apr-06-09  Jim Bartle: It was the "Barmen" tournament, so maybe outside factors figured in the result.
