Apr-30-04  valerianus: Keres and Korchnoi should have had a match in c. 1970...
Dec-07-09  M.D. Wilson: That would have been an interesting match, although Keres was past his prime, and Korchnoi had not yet reached his.
Aug-12-11  DrGridlock: Interesting "race" to end the game. Can White's h-pawn make it safely to h8? No!

With White's black-squared bishop out of the way (and unable to block a check by moving to h2), Black's queen checks on h1, and after a king move, takes on h8.
