Jul-25-06  paladin at large: Vidmar did not have much trouble with Bogoljubov. Here Vidmar gains an early passed pawn on a6, which he does not push further, but instead later converts into a gain of a pawn elsewhere.

  whiteshark: Better would have been <29...Qd6!>.

It keeps the Bd4 pin alive. If now <30.Qb3 Qxd4+ 31.Kf1 Nd5 32.exd5 Bc5 33.Ke2 Qf2+ 34.Kd1 Qf1+ >

  wwall: Instead of 68.Ra7, perhaps better is 68.e6! fxe6 69.fxe6 Kf8 70.Ke5 Rb8 71.Bc6 and White wins. If 68.e6 Kf8, then 69.Kd6 fxe6 70.fxe6 Ne4+ 71.Ke5 Ng5 72.Be6 and White wins
