Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-01-03  Rookpawn: Reshevsky played the final moves of the game under severe time pressure. He had just a few seconds left on the clock while Taimanov had more than a minute.
Feb-12-17  cwcarlson: Bronstein said 41...Nh7 42.Bd6 Qd4 43.Qc7 Nf6 44.Be5 Qd3+ 45.Kg2 Qe4+ is drawn, but 46.Kh2 Qe1 47.Bd4 Qe4 48.Qb6 Qe7 49.Bc3 wins. 43...Qd3+ 44.Kh2 Qf3 45.Be5+ Kg8 46.Qd8+ Nf8 47.Kg1 Qh3 48.Qf6 Qg4+ 49.Kf1 Qd1+ 50.Kg2 Qg4+ holds.
Feb-12-17  Howard: You might want to take a look at the 36-page of corrections/improvements to Zurich 1953 on the Russell Enterprises website. It does briefly discuss the position around the 41st move, and I believe it contradicts what you just said.

Admittedly, I didn't look at it that carefully, but it's worth a look.

Feb-12-17  zanzibar: Here's what I think is a direct link to the errata <Howard> spoke of:

(Is this it?)

It's billed as a computer supplement on the website.

Feb-13-17  cwcarlson: Thanks, I'll take a look.
