Aug-12-06  rudysanford: In 'The Russians Play Chess' by Chernev 1964, black is marked as resigning after 37. c4.
Aug-12-06  rudysanford: The game is also dated for 1934.

  Phony Benoni: The tournament wes played from December 1934 to January 1935, wich accounts for the confusion in date.

I have a version of the game which states it actually continued to move 46; that seems reasonable, as Black still has a little play in the final position here. I think Chernev probably jumped the gun.

  ChessHigherCat: The whole point of 26...Rbe8 was to set up 27 Rxc7 f5 28. Be5+ Rxe5 29. dxe5 Re1+, winning the bishop on c1. Belavenez must have seen that but he played 27. Rxc7 anyway, figuring "What the hell, he'll undouble so I can protect c3 and I'll win the end game". Reading his mind, Ragozin chickened out and played 28...Kh8 instead of the exchange sacrifice.
