  perfidious: White had a playable game before his mistaken attempt to drive Black's queen away with 17.f4, with 17.Bd4 a move which came into consideration, if White didn't want to snatch the lonesome pawn at a7, which looks reasonable, though not in Hayward's style at the time. The response to his actual move must have given Hayward a rude awakening-normally we see a rook give its life to demolish the white queenside, not Her Majesty.

This one has Sunday PotD writ large on it.

Jan-14-14  firebrandx: 17. Bd4 is actually winning for white when followed up with a quick h-pawn thrust up the board, and would in fact be forcefully won via modern ICCF rules. Still a brilliantly worked out finish by Rizzitano (of whom I've done cover artwork for his chess books in the past).

Whatever do you mean? This was an OTB game.

Jan-30-14  firebrandx: Ah sorry. A lot of Keith's games on here are correspondence, and I wrongly assumed this was another one.
