  nasmichael: To my novice eyes, this game uses the king interestingly. Flohr moves the king very boldly, aiming to use it with the queen to gain space and take that queenside pawn, and provoking the white queen to an exchange. It reminded me of a boxer sticking his chin out, trying to get his opponent to swing, and frustrating him. A very Muhammad Ali movement of the king.

Did Alexander resign, or lose on time?

I am not sure, but looking at the final position I would guess he resigned. Flohr is going to use his queen to jab at the king and make slow movements over to the queenside, take the pawn on b3.

Feb-18-04  Resignation Trap: In the final position, Black forces the Queens off the board, and the win becomes routine. If 48. Kg2 Qg4. If 48. Ke2 Qe5+. If 48. Qf2 Qxf2+. It is really quite easy!
