May-15-05  woodenbishop: Classic Reshevsky!!
Oct-29-08  jerseybob: Very nice game by Reshevsky. I had never seen this game before.
Oct-30-08  AnalyzeThis: I guess it's not a good idea to play the Nimzo Indian Reshevsky variation against Reshevsky.
Oct-30-08  jerseybob: The Reshevsky Variation is the move 5.Ne2. In this game it was played by Reshevsky, not against him.
Oct-30-08  AnalyzeThis: Yes, I knew that. Actually, to simplify it ever further, if you check - generally speaking, it wasn't a good idea to play the Nimzo against Reshevsky, period. The Benoni, Gruenfeld, etc. were better tries.

  sleepyirv: 34.Bg8! Great way to gain the tempo. Good game by Reshevsky.
Oct-31-08  jerseybob: I think if Fischer had been handling black in that game, he might have tried 7..Nxd5 instead of Lombardy's 7..ed. It's a little riskier, but more dynamic.
Dec-30-08  KingG: Black was worse in any case, but 25...Ne5 was just suicide. Lombardy obviously overlooked something in his calculations, maybe that his f7 pawn was hanging.
