  zydeco: Another last-round win by Keres to clinch a tournament. He plays very patiently and finally picks apart the disharmonies in white's position with 28....Nc2.

  typhoonsub: 26...Qc7! gives no time to white to move the king and leave them immediately with a very difficult position to defend: 26...Qc7 27.Qd1 Nc2 28.Ra2 Nxd4 29 f4 Bb4 30.Bd2 Ne2+ 31.Kh1 Nc3 32.Bxc3 Bxc3; or 29 Bf4 Ne2+ 30. RxN BxR 31.QxB Qxa5. If instead of 27...Ra2 White plays 27.Nac6, then 27...Nxa1 28 Nxe7+ (not 28.Nxd8, Bxd8) 28...Qxe7 29.Bb2 Nxb3 30.Qxb3 Bc4
