Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-14-06  ForeverYoung: This is a fantastic job of maneuvering that White does in this game. The commentators note after 12 Bf1 that this variation is unfavorable for black. They adroitly point out that 36 ... c5! had to be played and that the combination 37 Bxd5 Qxd5 38 Rxf5 would not be met by 38 ... gxf5 because of 39 g6!! but by 38 ... cxd4 with advantage. reference: Lesser Known Chess Masterpieces 1906-1915. This game is #117. The Final move according to the book is 52 Qe5.

  Honza Cervenka: Black's troubles were caused by unnecessary 14...g6, which weakened dark squares quite significantly, especially in combination with absence of black DS Bishop. But black defended his difficult position quite skillfully until incomprehensible 38...Qe8?, which allowed the sac of exchange on f5 with decisive effect. 52.Qc7 looks to be a more convincing finish than the text move but it is sufficient too.
