unferth: I don't think serious analysts do; even WAR advocates only claim something like a .9 correlation with actual wins. but every year you'll see a fans & media types upset that Mike Trout won an MVP with an 8.0 WAR when somebody had an 8.7 or whatever, or some guy with a 3.7 got left ...

unferth: according to the kibitzing on the game page, the above anecdote about Flohr v. Frydman is apocryphal. Flohr's actual move was 23 Nxe5, not Bxe5, making Frydman's resignation perfectly appropriate: Flohr vs P Frydman, 1936

unferth: don't think there's any way for the white king to reach g5 if the black bishop just shuttles between f8 and h6.

unferth: <sudoplatov> 38...Qxc2+ 39 Kf3 Qxd3+ and black either mates or forces a queen trade into an easily won ending, I believe.
