Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-05  MidnightDuffer: Uhlmann remarks in his annotations in "Winning with the French"; That he was in time trouble, that instead of 34. ...Qb6+; the move to make is 34. ... Rd3! (and continuing 35. Qe8+ Kh7, 36. g4 fxg3 37. h3 g2), He opines his opponent, the great Leonid Stein would have resigned immediately!

And then again; maybe there could have been a different sequence than what Uhlmann postulates and White still would have won.

You may not have time to check out the variations, but it is still interesting...

Uhlmann is up a Knight in this ending with 2 extra pawns on White's side.

(Addendum) Oddity of oddities, Chessmaster has for White; 35. d8= Bishop!? It's blown a fuse on me lately, that can not be so? Of course the mentor lines jiggle around, so it isn't easy to say exactly what is says is the best move. Maybe Qf2.

Yes, I was reading commentary on Uhlmann's legacy, being defeated by the Tal generation? This book is interesting on the French, defeating a wide array of opponents as Black as Uhlmann does.

Jul-09-07  sitzkrieg: Qf2 leads to exchange, and then black can pick up the pawn. c5 diverts the queen of d8, and wins for white according to fritz. Uhlmann had indeed a won position around move 34, but before that he obviously had a lost position too. Anyway, funny game, thanks for pointing it out.
Jul-10-07  OneArmedScissor: <MidnightDuffer> It appears <34. ...Rd3!> does seem to solve all of blacks problems.

May-05-10  jerseybob: This game is discussed - although the score not given - on pp.83-84 of "Leonid Stein, Master of Risk Strategy". Gufeld and Lazarev say Uhlmann blew the win. To sitzkrieg: what is your suggested improvement for white, grabbing the b-pawn on move 26?
Jul-26-15  Zugzwangovich: You don't too often see a move like 20.Qh3, simultaneously preventing and threatening a mate in one. At least I don't.

Snatching the pawn is met by the rejoinder 26....Nh4 27.f3 Bxd3 and it is all up with White, the line prevented by the game continuation.
