Nov-21-07  paladin at large: I thought Réti was at the height of his powers in 1926 but he looks awfully weak here, especially from move 37.... Rxa2 on, with his knight completely out of play and hapless attempts to defend the kingside. Monticelli was no pushover, and won this tournament, I believe.

  Honza Cervenka: At that point black looks already positionally outplayed. The only chance to make some resistance was 37...f5 38.exf6 g6 and pray for miracle. But I doubt that it could have saved black. Very good game from Monticelli.
Jul-12-12  thomastonk: <paladin> In his last years - 1926 included -, Réti wasn't able to play constantly well.

This is an early hedgehog, btw, and Réti treated it fine for a long while.

28.Bxc4 is a mistake. Hans Mueller thought that 29. Bxb5 was a big mistake, and suggested 29.. Nxe4 as a winning reply. That's however wrong, because of 30. fxe4 Rxc1+ 31.Bf1.

Instead Black could win a pawn by 28.. Bxe4!

Réti's queen side activities after move 30 lose the centre and then the game. Not well done, that's true.
