  iking: 27. e4! this move means CARNAGE!
Jan-03-15  kamagong24: great game indeed!
Jan-03-15  geniokov: This game was an example in a "Reshevsky Variation" in the book "How to Play Nimzo-indian Defense" Very nice game indeed!
Jan-03-15  kamagong24: there should be a pun for this game...
Jan-11-15  spawn2: Am I imagining things or does this game looks somewhat similar to the recent Carlsen - So game (at least the opening?) I remember Wesley So g4 thrust is one of the ideas for White in this position.
Feb-26-19  woldsmandriffield: Memories of the days of Sussex living when Hastings had GM all-play-all tournaments. Torre couldn't catch Andersson in the last round (who finished with a 13-move draw). Nevertheless, he played a very attacking game.

31 Qd3 would have won out of hand because 31..Bg8 32 Qg6 is crushing.

32 Bxd5 also leads to carnage after 32..cxd5 33 Rxh7+ Kxh7 34 Rxg5 Rf7 35 Qh5

Peters gave Torre two opportunities to find the killing blow Rxh7 on moves 33 and 35. While the situation is bad, Black has some survival changes with 32.. or 34..Nxf6.

Feb-26-19  Inocencio: Torre is the Asia's first grandmaster. Although, he did not become World Champion, nevertheless, he inspired many Asians like Anand, So etc.
