  nasmichael: Mr. Flohr attacks. I want to analyze to see when the scales tip in Flohr's favor. What do you say, <Crafty>?

  chesslad: This game is found on Page 247 of Wellmuth's Golden Treasury of Chess ( 1943). According to Wellmuth the game lasted 29 moves, with Flohr's final move being 29.Nh5. Reuben Fine, in The World's Great Chess Games (1952) gives the same game ending as Wellmuth on Page 166.

  chesslad: Sorry, in my previous post the game ending in Fine's 1952 book should read Page 174

You are right: the game score is wrong at the end. But Wellmuth and Fine don't give the right moves, neither cg currently does!

The game ended 21.. ♗xf4 22. ♕xf4 ♖ae8 23.♖dh1 ♔g8 24.♖h8+ 1-0. You can see this in the "Wiener Schach-Zeitung", http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/a..., which reprinted the game with Flohr's comments from the "Bohemia". I've found the game also in three Czech newspapers of 1929 and in Brinckmann's tournament book, and all these sources confirm the different version.

Mar-24-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: The game deserves a pun.

Since there are two versions of the final moves, both of them winning, I'll go with
