Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-05  Knight13: Lots of bad moves made by Black(Alekhine's notes clearly states the bad moves). This is quite a good game by Samuel Reshevsky.
Jun-08-10  AlbertoDominguez: This game won the prize for the best game of the round (this prize was established for each of the four rounds played in the final week of the tourney).
Apr-07-18  RookFile: This is actually a fairly typical way that black loses a QGA. He allows a d5 thrust from white to open up the lines. With black you have to do something as soon as you can against that powerful bishop on b3.

  plang: The disadvantage of developing the knight to c6 (rather than d7) in the classical QGA is that it strengthens White's thematic d5 tactic. 13 Nxd5 had been played in the draw Gruenfeld-Book 1935 Warsaw Olympiad; Reshevsky's 13 e4! was a clear improvement. 16..Nd8 would have failed to 17 Bg5..f6 18 18 Bxb7..Nxb7 19 Re1..Qc7 20 Bf4..Qd7 21 Rad1. 22..Qd6 23 Re8..Bxf3 24 Rxf8+..Kxf8 25 gxf..c4 26 Re1..Qd7 27 Qe7+..Qxe7 28 Bxe7+..Ke8 29 Bd6+..Kd7 30 Bxc7..Kxc7 31 Re7+ would also have been winning.
