No matter, Reuben Fine stuck it in a cardboard box it could not climb out of. MEEOORRW!!!

Sep-10-10  Garech: Very nice game from Reuben Fine - and very relevant given how the game vs. Natalia Pogonina is going. I doubt we will see 5. Qe7 from her - but if we get half the dynamics Fine got here, we're in for a lot of fun!
Sep-10-10  backrank: This game is deeply annotated by Fine himself in his book 'Lessons from my games' (now republished by Harding Simpole under the title 'Reuben Fine's best games').
