For me a human tragedy

Jul-13-09  v d pandit: Though he lost to Purdy (31 --- Nf3+?), Napolitano won maximum games (ten) in this CC Chp- one more than Purdy and Barda. With 10 wins and 3 losses he collected 10 Pts out of 13 and tied 2-3.

  profK: I must find Purdy's notes to this game. He did not give 31...Nf3+ a blunder mark.
