  Straclonoor: <46....Kxd4?> was adjorned move and all tournament participants were sure, that Spielmann made 46....Kc3!, wrote Austrian grandmaster in Belgium magazine 'L'Echiquir' in 1929. Spielmann showed right way in the article to win. Stockfish suggests the 46....Rg1+ as the best, 46....Kc3 - second.

Analysis by Stockfish 311220:

Jan-13-21  Granny O Doul: The careful student will note that 46... Rg1+ leads to the exact same position as 46...Kc3 in a couple of moves. Also that Black eventually finds himself in a typical KQ vs. kr ending.
