Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-07-21  Slow Play: The May 1941 issue of Chess Review has this account of the end of this game.

"Nobody was more appreciative of the beautiful finish to the 11th game at Staten Island than Horowitz, on the losing end. When Reshevsky made his 42nd move, Horowitz sat for about ten minutes in what appeared to be silent admiration of the nicety of this finishing touch. Then he tapped the table, looked up with a smile and said 'Very pretty, Sammy. I resign.'"

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: 42 Bf8 is a beautiful shot. Amazingly, The Computer found a faster mate after 42 Ng5. "When you see a good move, wait, don't play it..."
