Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-09-05  nsteinme: It is indicated that this game ocurred in a blindfold simul, presumably meaning that Fine was the blindfolded party. However, from the looks of 31... Be7, it could have been the other way around, as this just completely drops the piece; it seems forgotten or overlooked. Perhaps Epstein tried a last ditch tactic of trying to fool Fine into thinking that the knight wasn't on e6 by letting it hang? If this was the case, the strong GM let it be known that there would be no fooling on his watch.

Dec-18-13  CZeke: A blindfold RAPID-TRANSIT simul -- ten seconds per move. Fine won all four games!

  Phony Benoni: 31...Be7 is an irrelevant blunder; Black is well lost by that point in any event. White could give up the queen for the rook and probably still be winning.

It should be noted that Fine's opponents were also playing at the rapid transit time limit (10 seconds per move).
