Jan-03-06  Resignation Trap: Did the World Champion sell his soul to the devil to get this last-round draw with his opponent?

After 29. Kxh2 hxg3+ White is toast.

Jan-03-06  euripides: 29 Qb8+ looks possible e.g. 29... Kh7 30 Kxh2 hxg3+ 31 Qxg3 when White may be able to hold the extra piece, or perhaps 29...Rc8 30 Qe5 when a draw seems possible though it's still messy.

  OlimpBase: Allegedly Teufel was short of time and took respectable draw vs a living legend.

"Danke für dieses schöne Diagramm , aber es war so , dass der Weltmeister mir Remis anbot und dabei begann er zu zittern und auf dem Sitz zu schaukeln. - Das Schlimmste befürchtend, ergriff ich die ausgestreckte Hand und willigte in das Remis ein." -
