|Sep-22-03|| ||seoulmama: I can't picture Reshevsky losing in an opening he knows so well in a mere 10 moves. So I doubt if this game is real. |
|Sep-22-03|| ||chessgames.com: Here's a French site that references this game, only here it's 1958 and not 1968.
<S. Reshevsky - Margolit
1. d4 Cf6 ; 2. c4 e6 ; 3. Cc3 Fb4 ; 4. e3 c5 ; 5. Cge2 (une variante solide pour contrer la défense Nimzo-Indienne), 5... Cc6 ; 6. a3 Da5 (profitant du clouage sur la Tour a1) ; 7. Fd2,
7... e5 ? (une faute tactique importante, les Noirs étaient séduits par une belle idée qui cependant n'aurait jamais dû marcher) ; 8. axb4 ? (à présent les Noirs ont l'avantage, la bonne suite était 8. d5 !, attaquant deux pièces à la fois. Si Reshevsky avait compris l'idée de son adversaire, il aurait certainement trouvé ce coup gagnant), 8... Cxb4 (le grand maître américain voit la menace 9... Dxa1 suivie de la fourchette 10... Cc2, mais il rate le plus évident) ; 9. Txa5 ? ? Cd3# (un bien joli mat à l'étouffée) ; 0-1.>
|Sep-22-03|| ||PinkPanther: Reshevsky got checkmated in the Reshevsky Variation of the Nimzo Indian? Now that's just insulting. |
|Sep-22-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: I thought this was the Rubinstien variation? By the way, a very funny game. |
|Sep-22-03|| ||PinkPanther: <I thought this was the Rubinstien variation? By the way, a very funny game.>|
It is the Rubinstein Variation, but the Reshevsky Variation is a sub-variation of the Rubinstein Variation.
|Sep-22-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: I see. Which one is the Reshevesky variation? Which line is it? |
|Sep-23-03|| ||PinkPanther: 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e3 0-0 5. Ne2 (These opening moves constitute the Reshevsky variation of the Nimzo Indian.) |
|Sep-23-03|| ||drukenknight: where's that f3 move when you need it? Is Gheorghieu around? |
|Sep-23-03|| ||4daluvofchess: no way reshevsky played this crap, unless it was drunken blindfold blitz or something |
|Sep-24-03|| ||aulero: This game reminds me one of mine:
1. d4 ♘f6 2. ♗g5 e6 3. e4 c5 4. e5 h6 5. ♗d2 ♘e4 6. ♗e3 ♘c6 7. c3 d6 8. f4 cxd4 9. cxd4 dxe5 10. dxe5 ♗b4+ 11. ♘d2 ♘d4 12. ♘e2 ♕h4+ 13. g3 ♘f3#
The white player, one of the friends that taught me chess, was simply shocked.

Pinkpanther, there is no ...o-o in the gamescore. Margolit played c5, which later led into the Rubinstein variation.
|Aug-11-04|| ||Benzol: White can't even play 9.♕a4+ ♕xa4 10.♖xa4 because of 10...♘d3+ 11.♔d1 ♘xf2+ picking up a Rook.
How is it that Reshevsky a noted expert on the Nimzoindian fell into this one? |
|Dec-03-05|| ||FSR: I've seen this game referred to elsewhere as having been played in a simul, which would make sense.|
|Dec-10-05|| ||chesscrazy: Yes, Samuel Reshevsky himself played this horrible game. <FSR> This was played in a simul.|
|Mar-22-07|| ||ughaibu: Hey! RookFile! Look at this!!|
|Mar-22-07|| ||sitzkrieg: Clearly a thrown game...|
|Mar-22-07|| ||technical draw: Give the man a break! Reshevsky had been playing simuls for about 50 years when he played this game. He was probably hallucinating after playing the same variation for about the trillionth time.|
|Mar-23-07|| ||RookFile: Well, this is silliness, of course. White just plays 9. cxd5 exd5 10. Nf4 and has a clear advantage bordering on an outright win.|
|Mar-23-07|| ||HLecter: RookFile: Well, this is silliness, of course. White just plays 9. cxd5 exd5 10. Nf4 and has a clear advantage bordering on an outright win. |
well. looks to me like 9.cxd5 also runs into 9. ... Nd3++ ;)
|Mar-23-07|| ||RookFile: Ah, yes, thank you sir. I had my move numbers wrong, I meant on the previous move, in lieu of 8. axb4.|
|Jan-17-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Reshevsky got checkmated??!!|
|May-14-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 8 axb4??|
|Nov-18-10|| ||Tigranny: How could Reshevsky overlook the smothered mate?|
|Oct-05-12|| ||The Last Straw: 9.♘g3 should probably should be 1-0 so Mr.Margolit got lucky! I still don't see why 8.axb4 is bad.|
|Jan-29-14|| ||gabriel112000: After 9. ♘g3 ♕xa1 10. ♕xa1 ♘c2+ with a clear advantage to black.|
