Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-24-05  Ultra: Torre refutes Reshevsky's attack with authority.
Jan-12-06  SickedChess: how old was Reshevsky in the year this game was played?
Jan-12-06  Amoceann: 19 years old for Torre against 13 for Reshevsky, or around.
May-05-06  syracrophy: Some points of this game:

26...Ba6? <A blunder that allows white a winning attack. The idea of this move was to play 27...Bd3 putting white king on a mate net. There were excellent drawing chances with 26...e3!:

A) 27.Rhd1 e2 28.Nxe2 Qxe2 29.Rd8+ Ke7 30.R1d7+ Kxe6 31.Re8+ Kxd7 32.Rxe2 (=)

B) 27.Rxc7 e2! 28.Nxe2 Qxe2 29.Rxb7 Qe3+ drawing>

After 32...Qxb5 33.Rf8+ and its curtains down...

  Phony Benoni: Reshevsky seemed to have problems with any kind of Torre: E Torre vs Reshevsky, 1977

Quite possibly, he was the only person to play both of them.

  Phony Benoni: The first game played in the Western Championship (predecessor to the US Open) between future FIDE Grandmasters. Only one had played previously: Borislav Kostic in 1918. The first International Masters were Norman Tweed Whitaker in 1915 and Edward Lasker in 1916.
Oct-25-11  Mozart72: White's final material value: 15.6, Black's: 13.2. If 15.6 - 13.2 = 2.4, rounded to the nearest whole number = 2. A 2 equals two theoretical pawns in the standard chess piece relative value scale.
Dec-03-13  Eduardo Bermudez: Reshevsky 90 years ago !
Dec-03-13  RookFile: It's amazing the variety of guys Reshevsky played, ranging from Rubinstein to Karpov.
Dec-04-13  Mudphudder: What was wrong with 29.e7+...? Wouldn't this have lead to a quick promotion of the white e-pawn?
Aug-26-14  jerseybob: Mudphudder: 29.e7+,Kf7
