Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-05  sitzkrieg: Black misses a pawn, has no compensation; so lets draw..:P
Sep-14-05  RookFile: Yeah, Szabo's nerves were toast after he overlooked mate in 2 versus Reshevsky.
Jun-23-13  phil6875: <RookFile> Just to clarify, Szabo's terrible error against Reshevsky took place in Round 19, this was Round 17.
