  Sally Simpson: Game 9 in 'Reshevsky on Chess' and Reshevsky thinks this game is one the best he played as a child. He adds the game was drawn 9 moves (not given) after move 63.

I bought this book 2nd hand many years ago (it is an ex-library copy) and never really looked at it. The Reshevsky games I went over were 1948 W.C. tournament, Zurich1953 and of course those v Fischer. This book re-dates those.

A few weeks back I happened to look at it to resolve a query and have been dipping into it ever since. Some wonderful games.
