Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-05  paladin at large: I don't know what the losing move is but, young Réti seems too cautious in claiming some space - it takes him 34 moves to get a pawn past the third rank. Not a fault in abstraction, of course, but Schlechter makes good use of his chances to expand across the board.

  Calli: Schlechter's point is 42.e5! and if 42...dxe5 43.Qf6+ Kg8 44.Bxg6 hxg6 45.Qxg6+ Kf8 46.Rf2! - the key because it stops Re6 and Black is helpless against Rg1 etc
Sep-05-05  who: <paladin> well he gets a pawn past the third rank on move 1 :)
Sep-06-05  paladin at large: It's only a difference of 33 moves! (I need a cuppa coffee.)
