May-02-08  Banoboy: In Chess Strategy and Tactics by Reinfeld and Chernev, White's 18th move is given as 18.Ned4 and White goes on to win, viz.

  Phony Benoni: We've got an incorrect score and result here. First, Vajda did win the game ("Chess Results 1921-1930" by Di Felice, p. 109). Also, three online databases I've checked (Chess365, ChessLab, NICBase), indicate that Reinfeld/Chernev's book had the correct score. In full:

The final combination, beginning after <29...Re8>, is nice:

And, by the way, "Chess Strategy and Tactics" is one of Reinfeld/Chernev's best books, in my opinion. It's a collection of fifty master games published in the mid-1930s, and emphasizes instruction over entertainment though there's plenty of the latter to go around.

I concur! Excellent book, something of a sleeper. Reinfeld's early work was generally excellent such as his Mimeos on players, openings.
