Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-02-07  jenspetersson: Nice game by Bent. My Fritz found a combination which previous commenters seems to have missed. Milics gives 28.-Qh3 an ! in Informator, but Fritz sees a direct win in the better 28.-Ra1!!
Jun-03-13  jerseybob: This can't have been from Palma since Bisguier wasn't in that one. Even the terminology "Interzonal 1970" has an alt-history, parallel universe feel to it. So where was this game actually played?

  Phony Benoni: Looks like it is from the <1971> international tournament at Palma, where both players participated.
Jun-04-13  DWINS: <jenspetersson> is absolutely correct. 28...Ra1! would have forced an immediate resignation. Milics, however, was not correct in awarding 28...Qh3 an exclamation point. It's actually a blunder since it throws away the win.

Bisguier almost immediately went wrong with 30.Rf3?, when he could have kept an absolutely level game by playing 30.Nf5. A possible continuation could have been 30...h6 31.Qf6 gxf5 32.gxf5 Kh7 33.Rg1 Rg8 34.Qxf7+ Kh8 35.Qf6+ with a perpetual check.

Mar-29-20  rwbean: 20. g4 ... I was wondering "is this move as bad as it looks, why not ♕xe7" ... indeed, yes it is as bad as it looks! As noted by others, 28... ♖a1 wins, and 30. ♘f5 draws.
