    Hi, on the puzzle Keres-Alekhine 1-0 on 1-July-2013, it looks identical to the game between Petrosian and Spassky from a WCC match.

      Indeed J Wan. We noticed the error the moment we saw it.
      Thank you for pointing that out.
      We also picked up the Chess King training software which has a neat function.
      You set up a position and click ‘search position’ in the GigaKing database of millions of games played since the “beginning of time”.
      Bingo. Chess King found this position having come up in the Petrosian-Spassky World Championship Match, 1966.
