Nov-26-19  kostich in time: Odd. Fine claimed years later that his match with Steiner showed he was "out of form". However, he beat the #5 player in the US $ to ), with 2 draws. He also won the Werthiem Memorial the next year with seven wins and 2 draws ,beating Euwe and Najdorf. In short, had he not been afraid of Soviet collusion, he might have easily taken part in Hague/_Moscow.

  perfidious: Perhaps it is more a matter of one's own expectations for oneself than anything--Fine was very clearly superior to the likes of Steiner and should have beaten him like a borrowed mule.
