  perfidious: This was Reshevsky's only loss in this event, which he won.

A nice effort by Black in this ending.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Suesman was only a "minor" master, but starting on move 35, he plays the endgame at a Rubinstein/Capablanca level. After 35...Ke7 Suesman has only a tiny-looking advantage; his King is slightly closer to the Queen side than White's, plus he has a better Bishop. Yet only a few moves later Black has demolished the King side. Rather a nice little game to show the grandchildren.

  Phony Benoni: This game, originally scheduled for the evening of Friday, August 4, was postponed at Reshevsky's request and begun on Monday, August 7. It was adjourned after move 48.

Reshevsky was 10-0 coming into the game, which included a win in round eleven on Sunday. (Saturday was a rest day.) In the remainder of the tournament he conceded only one draw (to second-place finish Anthony Santasiere), finishing with a score of 15.5/17 and a three-point lead.
