another wonderful Bent Larsen game

Not quite correct, but quite entertaining! I don't know any games of Jelen other than this one: the loser can be very proud, too!

In case you were wondering, the box below the ChessFlash diagram is white when it's White to move (as is the case here after 35...Kh3), and black when it's Black to move....  Jelen makes an amazing move, and Larsen makes an amazing reply.

This game is a wonderful example of what Tim Krabbé called the "Steel King." As for Iztok Jelen, he is a solid IM, who drew his only other game with Larsen at the same tournament two years later. You can see more of his games at
