Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-14  jerseybob: 15.Bd2 might've been safer for white; f4 wades right into a hornets' nest of tactics leaving black a pawn up, though with plenty of play for white. Evans makes no effort to maintain the material edge - not that he could've - but keeps the tactics going with 25..Qd7! and the advance of the f-pawn. White's king bishop, well-posted for attack, is useless for defense. But how would black have answered 34.Re1 istead of Rf8+? Be that as it may, The Kid finally does it, beating the Old Man after years of trying. Kudos Larry!
Dec-05-18  Retireborn: Is the final position actually won for Black? 7-Man tablebase check would be interesting.

Or did Reshevsky lose on time?

Dec-06-18  Granny O Doul: He must have lost on time. There is no way White resigns there, especially with time control and adjournment coming up.

  wtpy: Time pressure would explain 34 Rf8+; as Jerseybob noted 14 years ago 34 Re1 is a dead draw.
Dec-07-18  Granny O Doul: True. On the other hand, the final position is certainly a draw as well.
Dec-10-18  Straclonoor: < the final position is certainly a draw as well.> No

Dec-10-18  Retireborn: <Straclonoor> Many thanks for that. I'd love to know how Reshevsky and Evans evaluated the position themselves!
Dec-10-18  Granny O Doul: I guess "certainly" was too strong.
Dec-10-18  RookFile: Reshevsky was something like +9 lifetime against Evans but for some reason most of the games I remember between the two were either Evans winning, or that miracle stalemate game.
