Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-30-12  kostich in time: Reti included this little-known gem in his chapter on Bogoljubov in Masters of the Chess Board..He saw as an model of active play with Black in the Sicilian. Indeed, it should be noted that Bogioljubov and Euwe were the most most skilled exponents of the Sicilian in the twenties.
Jun-19-16  Qindarka: It seems that White is actually winning in the final position after 27. Qxa8 Re2 28. Qb7+ Kg6 29. f5+
Jun-09-18  goser: Indeed, 28...Be7 29. Rf2 doesn't look better for Black.
Jun-09-18  ChessHigherCat: It's true white had a huge advantage when he resigned according to SF:

1) +4.54 (20 ply) 27.Qxa8 Re2 28.Qb7+ Be7 29.Rf2 Qe6 30.Rd7 Re1+ 31.Kg2 f5 32.Qd5 Qxd5+ 33.Rxd5 Kf6

  Telemus: I think it is a game-score problem: Black played 8.. a6 instead of 8.. h6.
