Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-09-07  Maynard5: This games is notable for the fact that the queens are exchanged very early. Reshevsky is able to achieve several small advantages, culminating in a won position. Black's 12. ... Nc4 is very strong, exploiting the fact that White's bishop is misplaced on e3. After the exchange, White is saddled with a doubled pawn, while Black has the two bishops. However, the decisive stroke appears to be 23. ... Bxc3, leaving White with a doubled pawn on the c-file.
Aug-09-07  RookFile: Fine of course was a strong endgame player, and must have concluded that the final position gave him no hope. He's down a pawn, but it is a rook and pawn ending, after all. I might have played on for a few more moves, although I'm sure Fine is right.

  Marmot PFL: Fine's adjournment analysis probably convinced him that the position was hopeless so he saw no reason to resume the game.
Feb-12-13  jerseybob: In this Neo-Grunfeld line, Fine's 7.e4 was possibly a little hasty. Black has that characteristic knight maneuver Nb6-c4, coupled with c5 and Bg4, to put the white center under intolerable pressure. Reshevsky plays the whole thing like a violin, and even in a temporarily-pawn-down ending, you know black's winning.
