Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-05  JohnnyRambo: Clear advantage for White, but
Reshevsky was short of time and
offered a draw. Fischer was
wise to accept it.
Jan-04-08  DanLanglois: It looks even to me. Black can play ...Nxf4 here.
May-20-09  Petrosianic: A likely continuation would be something like:

25... Ngxf4 26. Nxf4 Nxf4 27. Bxf4 g5 28. Qg3 Rxf4 29. Rxf4 Qxf4 30. Qxf4 gxf4 31. Rb5

and then either

31... Rd8 32. a4

Or

31... Rf3 32. Rxd5 Rxa3 33. e6 Re3 34. Rd8+ Kg7 35. d5

And White seems much better in either case. Though who knows, there may be improvements for Black somewhere, and with 15 moves to the time control, we have no idea how much or how little time Reshevsky had left. Probably very little, as he was famous for surviving steaming time pressure.
