Keres,Paul – Allan,Denis
Though I had of course seen this game a long time ago, it was only recently when I was flipping thru some games collection that I came across it again, and it reminded me of how great a player Paul Keres was. I am certain that my readers will also appreciate it!
Vancouver 1975 was to be Keres last great tournament victory. He died several weeks later on his way back home after touring the rest of Canada.
