Apr-06-14  druukee: A good fight. Little Sammy battling the Great Dane. I like the way Reshevsky's queen will keep circling the black king at the end even though it's surrounded by its own rooks and queen. The white pawn at a6 is helping too.

...Sammy played 30.Nh5, ΔNxf6+, a fork.

But I think 30.Nf5 might have been stronger. It threatens 31.Qg3+ followed by mate - I'm not sure how Larsen would have reacted to that move!

Jan-02-16  zydeco: <offramp> 30....Ne5 31.Qg3+ Ng6 and then if 32.h4 probably 32...c4, sacrificing the piece to get the queenside pawns rolling.
Jan-02-16  7he5haman: The perpetual at the end is a variation of the classic king in the corner with queen and rook blocking checks from the enemy queen. Neat!
