  zydeco: Tartakower gets Reshevsky out of book early.

Tartakower can be too clever for his own good. I don't understand 6....Qd7 or 7....Bf6. Just 6....Bg6 followed by ....Nf6 and ....0-0 seems strong enough.

12....Bh4 seems pointless.

Black's pieces are really unfortunately placed by about move 32. (I play the Czech Benoni and have had this kind of nightmare happen to me -- a useless dark-squared bishop and uncoordinated knights struggling to defend weak pawns on b6 and d6).

If 42....Rxd5 and white traps the rook with 43.Nb4.

May-02-15  RookFile: Beautiful maneuvering by Reshevsky. You get the feeling he was saying "Yeah, I own the e4 square and you have a bad bishop. Do whatever you want and that's not going to change."
