  dernier loup de T: Bonne analyse de Mieses, sauf concernant le 42√®me coup blanc: Rubinstein gagnait avec beaucoup d'effet aussi en choisissant 42.Fxa5 Rd3 43.h4 Fd7 44.g4 Fc6 45. f5!!..
May-11-20  Poisonpawns: Do you think black can hold in the opposite bishop ending after 34..Be6

  kingscrusher: Mieses is incorrect about Bb4 being necessary it seems.

If Be7
Nb5 Bb4+ seems okay for black
