This also gives the score as 1-0, and Najdorf's tournament score of 10/13 only works out if this is correct. I conclude that Don Miguel must have lost on time. Unfortunate, because that cost him the tournament win.

I agree with the question and comment. The win is for Black and 1-0 is clearly a misprint. The correct result should be 0-1. And therefore the puzzle question is also wrong when asking for white's move as that presumes the answer should lead to Win for White or at least a draw.

He cannot - the game score has an incorrectly recorded result. It is also wrong in my Chessbase database - shame on them.

Check out here to see the correct result.
