  Phony Benoni: Over at Kibitzer's Café, <olddog> asked why Black didn't play 35...Qa1+ instead of resigning.

That's a very good question. There could be several reasons: chess blindness, an incorrect score, time forfeit. Maybe our result is wrong and Alapin resigned out of disgust before Black's move. It will require some checking to make sure.

  perfidious: <Phony Benoni> In another source, I found this game, which cites the identical game score and result.

This smacks of time trouble, or possibly a typo, as 35.Qxc3 is an easy win (35....Qb6+ 36.Kc1 Qg1+ 37.Qe1 spells the end of Black's checks).

  Phony Benoni: <perfidious> Yes, 35.Qxc3 seems to be the obvious explanation.
Oct-24-16  Christoforus Polacco: Alapin had a lot of different ways to win. For example : 29.Q:d4 or 30.Q:a5
