  Knight13: Me likes 23. d5 better. Now Black seems to be a bit cramped and I don't see how Black should continue.
Mar-18-08  Resignation Trap: Smyslov's 28.Nd5? permitted Reshevsky to liquidate into an endgame. Instead, he should have increased the pressure with 28.Rd1 Ra6 (28...Rd8? 29.e5!) 29.Kh1 followed by 30.f4 and a general expansion on the kingside.
Mar-18-08  Resignation Trap: Reshevsky may have retained some winning chances by playing (instead of 36...Rc5) 36...Rc1+ 37.Kh2 Ra1 38.Bxa4 Bxa3.
