  PawnSac: Daly was no bum..
He won 11 state championships, 4 Boston chess championships, and the New England championship. Yet it is amazing how easily Sammy dusts him off in this game. Of course there are at least 2 good reasons for this:

1) In addition to being a child prodigy, Sammy was one of the all time best players who never became world champ. He rubbed shoulders with the top players, and the year this game was played he won the US Open.

2) The Stonewall is not an opening to be used at top level (GM) play. So Daly had better choices against Reshevsky.

Nevertheless, it's quite pleasing to see how Sammy systematically disassembles the white position.

Jun-20-15  RookFile: Reshevsky annotated this game. The gist of what he said was that white's kingside play was cute, but he neglected development (see the QB and QR).
