Feb-14-09  Chessmensch: My post above is incorrect. The game in Chess Life is a different 1939 one between the same players. The game in Chess Life can be found at Sorry about that.

When Reshevesky miscalculates, his "Greek Gift" turns out to be a steal for Adams. But one last resource, and no doubt the clock, come to White's rescue.
