Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-17-16  RookFile: Reshevsky tries to just ram the g pawn through, but it doesn't work. Should black have played something like 34....Rf4 instead?

  fredthebear: Yes, 34...Rf4 looks like an improvement for Black. Instead Black sacrifices the rook and bishop for promotion of the g-pawn. It looks like Reshevsky could have kept both pieces and used the passed g-pawn for leverage as White is not well-placed to stop the passer.

In the resulting position after Black promotes, White forms an interesting defensive barrier that boxes in the opposing king while protecting his own units.
