Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-04-21  tbontb: Reshevsky wins a weak Q-side pawn but misses the quickest way 40.Kb4 f5 41.Kc5 fxe4 42.fxe4 Bb7 43.Nd6, with N dominating B. Similarly, 43.Nc4 still wins. In the game, after 51.gxh4 White is clearly winning so the last chance is Alekhine's 50....e4 51.Ne3+ Kf6 52.Kc5 h4 53.gxh4 Ke5 with a likely draw.
Sep-04-21  RookFile: 12. Ng5 looks strong. The Be2 move may have been a routine move made without a lot of thought.
