Dec-03-04  Jaymthegenius: Marvelous!!! I love this game! The two greatest players of all time (for there time) are duking it out brilliantly on the chessboard!!! No romantic player would stand a chance against any of these two, the two greatest opening innovators of all time in a game of chess! This deserves to be the game of the mellenium!
Dec-03-04  Jaymthegenius: But I would play Bg5 after the Bb4 was played, then Bxf6 Qxf6 releases control of the center +misplaces the queen, but that is just me. Still, No arguing with Reti! A brilliant game indeed, oh, and I would aim for the Grunfeld as black.
Dec-03-04  who: I'm not sure about 27.Bxe4, it connects black's pawns and creates another passed pawn. But you're right it is a beautiful game.
Dec-19-08  sleepyirv: It's hard to say where White went wrong. Though 27.Bxe4 is bad, it doesn't look better for White to let Black keep both his knights.
Dec-19-08  Bishoprick: A beautiful game indeed! But "The two greatest players of all time (for there time)" does not even come close. Each of them wrote one of the greatest chess books of all time, but as players? Probably among top 10 in their time, but no more. Lasker, Alehkin, and Capablanca were all active at the time, not to mention a few other luminaries.
Dec-19-08  sleepyirv: <Bishoprick> Well, it's Lasker, Alekhine, Capablanca and then either Nimzowitsch or Rubinstein and Reti isn't far behind.
Oct-25-09  WhiteRook48: top 6 basically
