  chancho: What a fine game. I like how Rellstab nonchalantly plays 48...Kh4! sacrificing his Knight. Then he creates a passed pawn on the kingside which forces Reshevsky's Knight to guard it from advancing further, while creating another passer on the queenside.
Oct-03-13  jerseybob: Not sure I get white's 15.Kh1. It's very Petrosianic, seemingly directed against some future check or maybe the move Qg3. 15.a3 looks more to the point to allow Ba2 in response to Nc5. And when black does play 17..Nc5, 18.Bc2 still looks better to me, although at this point black has a nice free game.

Maybe Reshevshky intended the thematic regrouping ♗h4-g3. It seems to be Rellstab's understanding anyway as he prevented it with 15... ♗e7.
