  RookFile: He avoids 34....Nxc4. Maybe white brings his king up too fast.
Jul-05-13  Nerwal: Careful play by Reshevsky. 34... ♘xc4?? loses immediately to 35. h4, soon creating two passed pawns the black king cannot stop on its own.

  zydeco: Similar pawn structure to Donner-Petrosian from the same tournament. White has strategic problems: his dark-squared bishop is boxed on by the pawns on c3 and f4. In this game white gets a kingside initiative, but the dark-squared bishop is so bad that there are never any real winning chances.
