  Honza Cervenka: 32...Qf6 was a bad move, but after 32...Qc7 33.Rfc1 white would have had a big advantage too.

  Chessdreamer: Apparently the game score is incomplete. The remaining moves were

43...Rd8 44.Qh5 Nf6 45.Bxf6 Rxf6 46.Rxf6 gxf6 47.Qf3 Rd6 48.Qg4+ Kh7 49.Qc8 Rb6 50.Qc7 1-0.

May-08-09  Brown: After 21.b4 black's knight on b7 is stuck in the mud for the rest of the game.
Jun-19-15  zydeco: Geller was tied for first before this game.

  Mating Net: I second the praise of 21.b4. A seemingly innocuous move, but it must warm Herr Steinitz's heart to see the restriction method applied to perfection against an enemy Knight.
