  Sneaky: Seems like it would, wouldn't it?

But wait... 27. Rc1 Rxh2+ 28. Qxh2 Bxe4+ 29. Kg1 Bd4+ and it looks like Black is winning.

  Mateo: Some wild chess here. Yates nearly outplayed Bogoljubov.

21...Rh5? was bad.
Yates played the interesting 23.Nxe4?! but 23.Nxd5!! would be almost winning. 23...Bxd5 24.Qf3. What to do? The Rook is hanging. For instance, 24...Rhh8 25.Bxe4 0-0-0 26.Bxd5, White has clearly the uper hand.

24...h3? was not good (although it worked). 24..Qxh2+! should save Black. 25.Kxh2 Be5+ 26.Kh3 exf3+ 27.Rxe5+ Kf8 28.gxf3. White has an extra pawn but it is meaningless.

After 24...h3?, actually played, Yates played 25.Bxe4? and Bogoljubov won in great style. However, 25.g4! gave White an edge. He is threatening Bxe4 and gxh5. Black's position seems very difficult to hold.
