  HeMateMe: Black deserved to lose, for playing the Goglidze Attack. Just because.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: White's organization of his attack starting with 30.Qa1 astounds me, and my favorite move is 32.Rc2. It drives away the Queen with tempo, allows the White Queen to capture the g-pawn with check, and then the Rc2 is already perfectly placed to join the attack with Rc7+. Astonishing efficiency.
Aug-20-14  Aniara: Wow. Fine's best games are remarkably clean and direct (I am thinking, for instance, of his win over Botvinnik in the AVRO tournament in 1938, Fine vs Botvinnik, 1938).

  al wazir: 36. Rc7 Rd7 37. Rdc1 Be7! 38. dxe7 (38. Rxd7 Qxd7 39. dxe7 Qe8) Rxc7 39. Qf6+ (39. Rxc7? Qd1#; 39. e8=Q Rxc1+ 40. Qxc1 Qxe8) Kh6 40. Qf8+ Kh5 41. g4+ Kh4 42. Qh6+ Bh5 43. Qxh5#.
Aug-20-14  RookFile: White's queen swings from 1 rookfile to another, then back to a1, then somehow winds up on g6 to deliver a knockout blow. What a spectacular game!
Aug-20-14  morfishine: Very nice game very much worthy of the moniker "Game of the Day"

  Once: We may be in danger of over-eulogising the victor here.

As far as I can see, Fine's manoeuvre of Qa1-Qc1 is not the start of a combination. He is finding a way to bring his queen into the action, as she is surely not going to amount to much on the queenside. It is ingenious, but hardly decisive yet. Black could have shored up his kingside with moves like 30...f5 or 31..h6.

For me the combination starts with 32. Nxf6. Qa1-Qc1 is strong positional play, but it only seems to be the start of the combination because black does not defend against it as well as he could.

Great game though.

Aug-20-14  Chess Dad: After watching this game, I was thinking to myself that the Queen Sac on move 37 would make a nice Monday puzzle.

And then I noticed the 4 pages of Kibitzing. CG agreed with me, back on 9/28/09.

Aug-20-14  Moszkowski012273: Blacks decision NOT to play f5 on several occasions lost this game for him.
Aug-20-14  Bubo bubo: Why not 36...Rd7, at least avoiding instant disaster?
Dec-24-14  Eduardo Bermudez: https://www.facebook.com/notes/edua...
Jan-10-15  Eduardo Bermudez: Harmony, coordination, beauty ... definitely: Fine Art
Feb-09-15  Eduardo Bermudez: ZUGZWANG67: ... the mate in question is delivered by the two only pieces that have kept their original mode of moving, invented by the ancient arabs.
Jun-15-15  hadi706: 36.NXf6!!
یک قربانی عالی از سفید که میتونه به عنوان یک کوییز خیلی سخت هم در سایت استفاده بشه
Mar-03-16  peterh99: It looked like Dake had the better game with his two bishops and mobile kingside pawhs but Fine just pounced and demolished his position with a quick brilliant combination.
Oct-30-16  PraveenSagar33: A fantastic game that demonstrates positional skills combined with great attacking skills by Reuben Fine. Check out: http://www.zugzwang.in/chess-news-b... for my analysis of the game.

Jul-26-17  Eduardo Bermudez: It is one of my favorite games, the pair of knights is stronger than the pair of bishops !

“The average player believes that the difference between him and a master lies in the number of moves ahead they can calculate[…] More important, however, is the ability of the expert to play logically,i.e., to base his game on certain ideas. For in chess, as in other fields,ideas are a means of organizing thought. A game between two amateurs is sometimes a hodgepodge of a hundred distinct ideas which have no relation to one another […] Master’s games are much more unified; indeed, one test of a great game is that it should be a coherent unit, in some sense, from start to finish.” Reuben Fine (1945)

  Messiah: Interestingly, I did not know this super-interesting game beforehand. White's play pretends to be easy and the moves itselves pretend to be almost automatic. Excellent! Very nice!
