  Honza Cervenka: Black was beaten here like a little boy in a simul. I think that after 33.Qxf6 it was proper time to resign.
Aug-06-05  Kangaroo: If Bogdanovic resigned after <33. Qxf6>, there would have been no dramatic exchange sacrifice <40. Rxe5> followed by the elegant <42. Ne6!!> move.

  Honza Cervenka: <Kangaroo> That's true. And that's exactly what poor Rajko (by no means a bad player) deserved to get for playing on with desolated position and two lost Pawns...:-D
Aug-24-13  Glossu: What a great game. Resignation Trap: Could you share the rest of his games from the Lithuanian book that you mention?
