  MissScarlett: The <ACB> is the source for this game, but a <St. Louis Star> report of August 27th, p.8, muddies the waters by giving the names of all Reshevsky's opposition and <Bruckstein> isn't one of them. It further states that the 12th game, against <Haller>, was a continuation of their game from the day before: Reshevsky vs L T Haller, 1921

<Against his twelth opponent, Lewis T. Haller, he continued for half an hour of the twelvefold match a game which was adjourned from Thursday. The game was again adjourned, and to finish it Sammy has changed his plans so as to stay a few more days in St. Louis. The boy and Haller will play the game to completion at the Hotel Statler, where Sammy is staying, as 1 p.m. Monday.>

This would mean that <11b> is strictly correct.

  naresb: White player 10 yr old had hit almost every element-

all pieces on best squares- after 17. Rhe1,

strong center control- from 9. Nd5 to 17... g6,

provoked opponent to commit mistakes, more importantly

created Weakness in opponent's side with 21. exd6+ a discovered check, attacked opponent's weakness

better his Pawn Structure with 7. gxf3

how he achieved this at his age- need deeper investigation.
