  chancho: This is a good game, but no way these guys are rated that high. (check the scoresheet) Just kidding of course.

  Phony Benoni: Of course the ratings are accurate. The game was played in California, and everything is higher out there. Seen their gas prices lately?

At any rate, this is a big 999 point upset for Reinfeld!

  WannaBe: Wonder how many points he gained by beating someone who is almost 1000 points higher.

  tamar: I have to think steroids were involved.
Apr-18-07  Dick Brain: Inflated ratings you can tell. 25. e4? could be played by an 6999 player, tops.

  FSR: To quote Janowski (shortly before losing to Reshevsky), the player of the White pieces "knows as much about chess as I do about rope dancing!"
Dec-23-08  YoungEd: Beautiful winning combo beginning with move 26. What was with 14. Nd3? Seems like the knight was better posted on e5, contesting the c4 square.
