Jan-05-02  bishop: Its hard to believe that Reuben Fine handled the White pieces! 8 Bxe4 was defenitly bad. Normally Fine would have seen 9...nxf2! in a speed game.

  patzer2: Fine's 9. Rxg7? looks like an error, well punished by Dake's 9...Nxf2!! reply.

  Calli: The explanation is simple. Fine was 16 years old at the time of this game. He was not yet the great Rueben.

  Phony Benoni: Woodger's biography of Fine states that this game was played in a match. Fine had played the gambit <6.Nge2> earlier. Dake had not taken the pawn, eventually winning in around 70 moves. Afterwards, Dake did a little homework with the help of Al Horowitz, and this was the result.
