Apr-03-05  Karpova: Nice game by Reinfeld!

7...bd6? white gets rid of his bad, black gets rid of his good bishop.

10...e5 looks premature to me.
white gets good play against the isolated d-pawn while black is left with his problem of developping his bc8 (be6 is poor and indicates that black played a poor game so far)

black should have played a6 and b5 to drive the nb5 away. black's play on the c-file turns out insufficent.

23.g4 (of course white cannot capture the d-pawn because of the mating threat)

Jul-10-06  RookFile: No, you misjudge this..... 7...Bd6 and 10.... e5 are fine. Just because a guy lost a game doesn't mean it's time to throw the whole opening out the window.

Jul-10-06  Nasruddin Hodja: Hmmm. I agree: 7...Bd6 and 10...e5 are standard ways for black to reduce his inquality in space, even at the cost of an isolated pawn. Where Marshall went wrong, I think, is that he lost a whole tempo _and_ let white's light-squared bishop occupy a much better diagonal with 13...Nxf3+? It was probably better to kick the knight back with 13...a6 and then to play 14...Bg4, which allows him to exchange light-square bishops.
May-17-09  YoungEd: This is indeed a nice game by Reinfeld. It could be a textbook example for how to play against an IGP. <Nasruddin Hodja> is right that the bishop is great on f3.
