Dec-30-05  MorphyMatt: A really fine game.
Dec-30-05  Shams: yes, very nice!!! thanks for flagging it. Fine just kept putting on the pressure. 18...g5 must have rankled for Denker.
Jan-09-09  A.G. Argent: Reuben once wrote of Denker that "His style was bold and forceful, invariably playing for a winning attack." Well, with that in mind, this game is a wonderful example of turning tables. Speaking of rankling, this is a beautiful example of above mentioned bold and forceful play. What an overwhelming display of agressive, get-the-hell-outta-my-way-I'm-comin'-after-you chess. Reuben Fine was a bad-ass. One of my all-time favorites.
Jul-23-14  jerseybob: Denker can't have been happy to part with his light-squared bishop on move 10, but he was already under severe pressure. 9.Qd2 might've been better to develop normally and avoid getting spiked by a future Bf5.
