Nosher v Gazza 10th game 1993.Instead of 36.Rh1+ Kg6 37.Ne5+ Kf5 38.Nc6+, White (in timetrouble as usual) played 36.Ne5 g6 37.Rf1 (37.Nc6 also wins) Be6 38.Nf7+ Bxf7 39.Rxf7 Qd5 40.Re7? (40.Ne4!+-)which let Black escape with 40...Qd6 41.Rf7 Qd3
That's so.I read somewhere that Nigel used up a lot of his remaining time on the previous move, when he was considering the blunder 35 Ne1?. (Which accords with my memory of watching the game on TV - that and Ray's patriotic humming.)
Wasn't the ray Keene humming from the game short won?
Not as I remember it. But he's Memory Man and could no doubt tell us for sure.
