Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-27-03  PVS: A different variation than that in the game of the day. This was in the final round and earned Smyslov second place.
Aug-04-03  Yuri54: 37.Bxa2 Nc3+ 38.Ke3 Ra4, winning the bishop yet up by a pawn after taking the pawn on b6
Nov-11-05  Bobak Zahmat: The pressure on the queenside is too much for Euwe.

if 23...Ra2 24.Bd4 =

if 23...Ne5 24.Be2 =
