Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-01-03  ughaibu: This is a nice Scotch game, white wins some material but black gets a big lead in development and beautifully coordinated pieces.
Feb-05-05  Open Defence: This is one of the few games in the 4..Bc5 , 5..Qf6 variation where Black's Queen is not chased around
Jun-14-14  Howard: This was one of the pivotal games in Reshevsky's first U.S. championship victory. First place was in jeopardy for him when this game was played, but in a sharp struggle he overcame Kashdan.

  andrewjsacks: Rather odd to see Reshevsky in this type of game. He showed he was capable in tactical melees as well as in his usual positional bent.
