|May-25-02|| ||Sneaky: Here Reshevsky plays Capablanca's 13. Qf3 move with brilliant success. (See Capablanca vs Levenfish, 1935 for comparison)|
16. Nc6! is a move to remember.
After 16. Nc6 I think that Black is forced to make concessions. E.g. 16 ...Qxg3? 17. hxg3 and there is no way to save both the rook on b8 and the bishop on b4. Or 16. ...Rb6 17. Nxb4 Qxb4 18. Qxg7 and White is winning.

|Apr-07-08|| ||MichAdams: According to the Chessbase copy of this game, Petrov played 15...Qd5.|
|Apr-07-08|| ||chancho: Stephen W Gordon's 1997 book of Reshevsky's games has 15...Qd6 as the move played.|
|Apr-08-08|| ||Resignation Trap: In the tournament book, <Schachmeisterturnier zu Kemeri in Lettland 1937>, the move <<15...Dd8-d5!>> is given, followed by a diagram which has the Black Queen on d5. Since Petrov was on the editorial staff for this book, it is most likely the correct move.|

|Jul-31-11|| ||Whitehat1963: Currently number two on the list of the 40 most difficult Guess the Move games, and by far the longest game on the list. Give it your best shot. I freely admit, it baffled the hell out of me.|

As I mentioned in Meyer vs E Torre, 1986, Lakdawala pegs 16. Nc6?! (his evaluation) as a mistake, and the ensuing exchange sacrifice as strong for Black. So there's some interesting difference of opinion here.
|Aug-23-16|| ||Resignation Trap: Black has more than enough compensation for the exchange as White's King is exposed.
Black missed more than one chance after 31. Rc2:

31...d3 wins: If 32. Qxd3 Qf5+ 33. Qf3 Rf4. If 32. Rcc1 d2 33. Rd1 Bc5+ 34. Kg3 g5!
But wait! There's more after 35. Qd4:

35...Kh6?? is a horrible blunder which loses immediately. 35...Bd2! followed by 35...Be3+ still gives Black winning chances.
