  fredthebear: Due to this being a correspondence game, I wondered if it truly reached an over-the-board conclusion. The final position looks bleak for Black, so resignation is appropriate. White is threatening a discovered double check with 26.Nf5+, which would win the Black queen. Black has the move to avoid this, but he's already down the exchange and could face trouble on the open c-file with one less rook and has the backward d-pawn. White can also push the f-pawn if and when he wishes, or continue to bottle up Black's not-so-active bishop pair. Black was wise to save himself the postage and the agony by resigning.

  solander: This game is said to have been played
in 1971, but Sokolsky died in 1969,
so there must be some mistake here.
