  HeMateMe: Fred creates a puzzle for one of his own books. Fine wins on move 26.

  woldsmandriffield: In the opening Fine played 9 g4 which could have been met by 9..Nd5! The alternative 9 e4 scores nothing. Reinfeld's 9..h6? was suicidal. He had to try 9..Be7 when 10 h5? Nxh5! is no good.

28 Ba2 is a pretty final move setting up a fork on d7.

  Dionysius1: Hi <Woldsmandriffield>. 9...h6 looks ok to me. Anything else seems to lose the bishop for a pawn. What's the case for it being suicidal?
