Jan-21-03  mrwonkabar: Qxe4??? A major oversight by Fine. Hard to believe he missed ..Bf5 .

  Honza Cervenka: Fine certainly had not his best day. Why did not he continue 16.Qd4 Rad8 17.Bxe5?
Jan-22-03  judokausa1: I am guessing that the player figured a grandmaster with a queen for rook and bishop was going to win, it was just a matter of technique which Fine had plenty of.

  Honza Cervenka: It is queen for rook, bishop and pawn after 16.Qd4 Rad8 17.Bxe5 Rxd4 18.cxd4. White also has nice bishop pair. It is not easy for black over the board to find and realize right winning plan. At least it is worthy to try to continue playing such a position. But Fine simply resigned the game. You can be right with your guess, but I think that he was heavily demoralised after overlooking 15...Bf5.
Jul-05-04  dorn: Vide Gruenfeld vs Bogoljubov, 1923.
Jul-15-07  waddayaplay: Also Bu Xiangzhi vs L Bruzon, 2001

  Phony Benoni: I believe that, around this time, Fine was experimenting with playing blindfold rapid transit (10 seconds a move without sight of the board). Could this have been one such game?
