Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-23-05  paladin at large: A lively and interesting game with fine positional consideration by Maroczy. Maroczy weakens Reti's kingside pawns, and sacrifices a pawn on b2 to gain time for the decisive kingside assault - which turns into quite a brawl!

Anybody see a win-chance for Reti before the heavy pieces went off?

Mar-19-15  Marmot PFL: <Anybody see a win-chance for Reti before the heavy pieces went off?>

31...Re2+ 32 Bxe2 Qxe2+ is perpetual check, as 33 Kg3 Qe3+ 34 Kh4 Qf2+ 35 Kg5? loses to f6+.

But white could prevent that with 31 Kg1
