Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-11  AnalyzeThis: Reshevsky grinds this one out.
May-02-15  zydeco: Not a very good game by Rossolimo. He gives up the d-file, trading rooks into an inferior endgame, and misses a tactical point with 26.Bxe5.

Rossolimo is usually a pretty fun player. Here, against Reshevsky, he was probably just hoping for a draw.

I was curious about 35....Kc3. I think the simplest is 36.Kg5 Kb2 37.Kf6 Kxa3 38.Kxf7 Kxb4 39.Nxa6 Nxa6 40.Kg7 and white's pawns march. White could also play 37.a4 Ka3 38.b5 axb5 39.axb5 Kb4 40.N moves Kxb5 41.Kxf7, which probably wins too.

Oct-04-18  Parachessus: 25. ...Bd8 was the correct move to stop the tactical shot.
