Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-08-07  achieve: Very nice play by Reshevsky, but he had a nice forced combination with mate after 62. Qe8 ... -- namely 62...Bg3

My engine found it immediately, but in this case I think a human will spot it soon, also.

Jan-27-09  paladin at large: This was the only game Dake lost at Syracuse 1934; he finished third.
Feb-11-13  jerseybob: The finish of this game reminds me of the end of Reshevsky-Fischer, U.S. Chp. 1963-64, almost 30 years later, with Sammmy this time on the receiving end.

  Mateo: 30.Nc2? loses a pawn. White had to find something else, if possible. 30.Ne6! could save him. 30...fxe6 31.Qxe6+. 30...Rd7 31.Bxb4! Qb5 32.Qc3! seems like a crazy saving line. However, very difficult to find it on the board.
