Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-14  zydeco: Very patient game by Stein, who spends twenty moves maneuvering his minor pieces before finally doubling rooks on the d-file.

It's hard to explain 44....Kh7 -- black moves his king away from protection of two key points (f7 and f6) and gives white a free tempo for 45.Rb6. And then black spazzes out with 45....Bxe4.

Apr-14-14  capafischer1: Fischer had a very high opinion of Stein. Apparently they played lots of blitz together.
Apr-14-14  mrbasso: <It's hard to explain 44....Kh7.> I don't see a better move.
I'm quite good at cheap tactics (not so good in avoiding them), therefore I saw Nf5+ threat immediately.
