  refutor: does anyone have any ideas about that queen sac by reshevsky? he can't get enough for it
Mar-05-03  drukenknight: Hmm, its a complicated/confusing game lots of ways it can go.

white might have tried 19 h4 It makes sense to attack the K if white is behind in material, Sammy pushed the a-pawn first, hoping to make it up on the q side pawns first.

better for black might be: 22...Qxd3+ and blacks Rooks blast the K in the open field.

by the time we get to the queen sack, the game looks really even, I think it looks like a good choice. so maybe white messed up later than this.

24....Rd8 may be better.

Mar-06-03  ughaibu: White got more than enough pieces for the queen, it looks like he blundered in time trouble, Reshevsky was a time trouble addict.
Mar-06-03  drukenknight: I didn't know that. I wonder if tripled pawns are a Reshevsky trademark too?
Mar-06-03  mdorothy: As far as the queen sac, my question is what other options does he have? Most everything I can come up with fails to black's incredibly strong queenside attack.
Mar-30-04  ruylopez900: I guess it doesn't matter whether Reshevsky's queen sac was sound...he played it against a Canadian so he was obviously doomed! (or not) =D
Mar-30-04  TrueFiendish: How sad the white bishop looks! Humiliated.
Mar-31-04  ruylopez900: Good Point, <Fiendish>, Reshevsky wasn't really Two minor pieces and a Rook up for a Queen (11pts v. 9 pts) because the Bishop was locked up in the corner by his own pawns.
Nov-09-08  PeterB: A really great game by Yanofsky, who got his GM title at this Olympiad! Excellent positional understanding.
