Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-03-05  ConLaMismaMano: What if 31...Kxe6?

Perhaps something like 32.Qb3+ Ke5 33.b5 Nac8 34.Bb2! (If 34...Bxb2 then 35.f4+ Kxf4 36.Qg3#)? Are there any good moves left for black or is he lost?

  Phony Benoni: There may be errors in the score. Olimpbase gives 9.f4 (instead of 9.f3) and 22.Be3 (instead of 22.Ba3). Those would make 31.Bxe6+ completely sound, whereas in the text given here it's speculative.

Can anyone find further information?

Nov-09-06  TrueFiendish: Yeah it must be f4 instead of f3 otherwise 13.e5 would be totally unsound.

  Retireborn: Reinfeld's 1941 book of Keres games does indeed give 9.f4 and 22.Be3.
