  Phony Benoni: Hard to tell exactly, but I think Keres has just played <6.b3>. If that's board two in the background, then it's Ilmar Raud and Petar Trifunovic.
Oct-14-11  BobCrisp: After 40.g5, I believe that Black is <Zugswang>. Am I right or am I right?

  pawn to QB4: I'd say you are not right. It'd only be zugzwang if 40...Kg8 were a fatal weakening and, if he were allowed to make no move, he'd have a draw. But if 40.g5 could be answered by passing the move, I think 41.g6 would still be winning.
Oct-14-11  BobCrisp: I've never really understood <Zugswang>.
Oct-14-11  sfm: Genuine Zugswang is when moving is a great disadvantage, typically resulting in loss. It is very common in endgames.

There is a nice page on wikipedia.

Oct-14-11  BobCrisp: <Keres> was nothing but a bag of bones during the 1930s. Looks as if he could've been carried off on a strong breeze.
