Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-06  paladin at large: RĂ©ti builds up a tremendous position between moves 10-23. White should have played Bxf6 on his 11th or 12th move.
May-28-08  Whitehat1963: Why not 30. Bh2? What happens if 33. Rfxe1? (Player of the Day plays Opening of the Day)

  GrahamClayton: Once Bogoljubov's knight is driven back by 24...g6, the weaknesses in his position are clearly highlighted - weak f2 square, the Bg3 being blocked by the e5 pawn, the poor placement of the Queen on c1 and Reti's absolute control of the Q-file.
