Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-30-04  Whitehat1963: Smyslov sacs a queen in a game that features the opening of the day. Nice, clear finish. Fork you, buddy!
Oct-15-07  Erdkunde: Smyslov seems to have a fondness for sacrificing his Queen.
Feb-08-08  paladin at large: An exchange of the queen, really, for rook, knight and doubled white pawns - fine positional feel by Smyslov. White is forced into a lost ending.
Feb-22-09  outsider: Why is white lost after 44. Qd1 Re1 45. Rf1 Rd1 46. Rd1? Of course, this ending is very bad (especially considering it is played against Smyslov), but it is still possible to fight. What do I fail to see?
May-28-13  dmvdc: <outsider: Why is white lost after 44. Qd1 Re1 45. Rf1 Rd1 46. Rd1?>

Smyslov explains:

<After 44.Qxd1 Re1+ 45.Qxe1 Rxe1+ 46.Kg2 Re5 Black wins the g5 pawn, and then creates two connected passed pawns on the kingside.>
