  Phony Benoni: A nice little hiccup combination. If White's queen could hop over the rook, he could win with 20.Qa2--so he figures out a way to stutter-step the pieces into position.

  AnalyzeThis: That's why Reshevsky was strong right to the end - he was strong at calculation.
Apr-26-17  hudapri: This whole 10... Nxe4 may be a little unsound. 11... a6 may be better. After 11... Ba6 Black is almost in dire straits. 14. Nxd6 is much stronger than 14. Bxd6.

14... Bxb5 was needed here, 14... Nxd5 opens that light square diagonal and it's over.
