  Honza Cervenka: In the chessbase.com database this game includes additional moves 38.Qe2 g3 0-1.
Feb-11-12  optimal play: If those 38th moves were actually played, they were as superfluous as the 37th moves.

This is an extremely closed position after almost 40 moves. Starting with 12...e4 Chigorin gradually corrals White's pieces away from their King whilst positioning every single one of his pieces so that their full force is aimed directly at h2. The final assault was irresistible.

Feb-11-12  King Death: No modern master would play 20.a5??
