Dec-14-17  Eastfrisian: "Happy" is wrong. He died already. Why do you post that?

Bela Sandor - Zoltan Herendi, Budapest, 1948

Black to play resigned.

This position is in ' 'Blunders and Brilliancies' by Ian Mullen and Moe Moss. (1989) and 'Oops! I Resigned Again! by Ian Rogers (2021)

Anybody have the full score or where the position was first published. CHESS (my first guess because B. H. Wood played in Budapest in 1948) drew a blank and so does BCM.
