  nasmichael: From this position, who stands better?
As I played through this game, between 1)a well-respected player and wonderful narrator of chess games, sitting across from the future 4th Correspondence Chess Champion (1965), I saw that pieces vacated squares to allow others to take their place in a coordinated manner; it may be a bit late for me to be looking at chess games today ;-), and I may not be explaining it correctly, but the movements in this game seemed rather "communicative" -- that is to say, the push and pull of piece movements for wach player were very clear in the mind. Both seemed very committed to the "pathway" of the game. Not in some pre-arranged exhibit, but each seemed very clear as to what he wanted to do, very clear as to his powers and his choices.
