I forget to mention that followers of Ray Keene may be interested in comparing "his" annotations with those of Adrian Hollis in the Hartston-Hollis game.

You mat think you are seeing double!
Fancy!!🤣

I would like to have seen the Hollis v Moiseyev game. I wonder if it is available.
I thought I saw the chance of tempting him to an incorrect sacrifice. Back came his move; he had indeed made the sacrifice and the envelope burnt a hole in my pocket during an important meeting (my mind was elsewhere). After a mere two days’ thought I sent my reply. The post between England and the USSR takes about a month for the return trip. Soon after posting my move, as I was walking from the Ashmolean Museum to Keble, just passing the front gate of St. John’s, the realisation of what I had overlooked hit me, and there followed an inexorable wait for the death blow which I now saw only too clearly.
Oh, I know that feeling!!

Your very reasonable request is my command.

The game is now within the article.

It is available. On its own it doesn't tell me much because, if Hollis saw the possibility of the sacrifice that was played, it's not obvious what he overlooked after that.
Is the answer to this going to be that Hollis on playing 37...Kg7 intended 38 Qa7+ Kg8 but overlooked 39. Qd7 (as given in the BCN notes) which seems to cover everything?
"Do you play chess?"
"Yes, but I prefer a game with a better chance of cheating."

I should clarify that I lifted the game from Chessbase Correspondence Database 2020 and my chessbase account automagically adds BCN as the annotator.
