Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-10-16  Retireborn: A game from the first Olympiad, where Reti was playing for Czechoslovakia. 31.Bxf5 was a sealed move according to my notes.

After 32...f6 [playable, but 32...Kf8 is safer] 33.Nxf6! was probably a surprise for Black. He goes wrong with 33...Kxf6; instead 33...Rxe2 34.Nxe8+ Kf7 35.Nxc7 Kg8!! (threatening ...Be4+) obliges 36.Rxf5 Qe1+ 37.Qg1 Qh4 38.Rf3 Qe4 and the pin on the rook holds the draw for Black.

However it is 34...c5 which loses; instead Houdini gives 34...Qd6 35.c5 Qxd5+ 36.Qxd5 Rxd5 37.Rxe8 Rxc5 reaching an endgame which Black may just be able to hold.
