May-06-08  RookFile: I think this is a typical example of a Reshevsky win. He plays a simple opening, but finds a way to introduce double edged chances by giving up the e5 pawn to get a queenside majority. Then he wins the other queenside pawn, having visualized by virtue of his defensive abilities that he can withstand Najdorf's counterattack. Finally, he returns his extra pawn for a mating attack.

  ChessHigherCat: It's funny trying to imagine the reactions of the spectators if these guys had played the ultra-ethereal SF line here:

1) +4.40 (18 ply) 34...e5 35.Qb7 d4 36.Qe4+ Kg7 37.Qxe5+ f6 38.Qe7+ Qf7 39.Qd8 Qf8 40.Qxf8+ Kxf8 41.a6 dxe3 42.fxe3 Ke7 43.Rb1 Kd7 44.b6 Kc8 45.b7+ Kb8 46.Rb6

What the hell's wrong with these guys, why didn't black take the pawn. What are they thinking about?
