  Benzol: This might be the last game Stein ever played.
Feb-01-04  Catfriend: And a good one! Nothing can prevent ♗f1 with mate!
Feb-02-04  kutuzov: It is the last game he ever played. It is mentioned in a book about him.
Feb-02-04  Resignation Trap: Kutuzov, are you related to the Category I player who finished last in the 4th USSR Championship (1925)?
Feb-02-04  TrueFiendish: ...maybe he's busy checking the family tree... :-)
Jun-06-04  rodrigochaves: why white didn't get in e4? (19.fxe4)
Jun-07-04  Cyphelium: After 19. fxe4 Bg4, white gets crushed. For example 20. Qf1 Bc5+! 21. Bd4 (21. Kh1 Qh5+) 21.- Bxd4+ 22. Rxd4 cxb2 .
Jul-15-10  ycbaywtb: discovery checkmate, painful
