This one is very, very, very instructive.

Reinfeld moved his Rook away from the action: 61..Rb2? This loses because Tholfsen can get his King to h7.

The simplest and best defence was 61..Kg8! 62 Kg6 Rf8! 63 g5 Rb8 and if 64 Ra1 Rb6+ with a Philidor.

Black can also go 61..Rg2 62 Kf5 which must now be met by 62..Kg8 when 63 g5 Rb2 64 Ra6 Rb8 = could follow.

In the game White establishes a very nice Lucena after 66 Rf4+!
