Jan-08-12  King Death: Sure it is. White can force this type of position with Black to move which is winning for him:

From the diagram Black soon runs out of moves. If 1...a5 2.a4, 1...a6 2.a3 a5 3.a4 transposes and 1...h5 2.h4 or 1...c4 2.c3.

  Retireborn: In Informator Gulko gives 37...gxf5 a ?? and says that 37...g5 would have drawn. I imagine Reshevsky was in his usual time trouble.

  HeMateMe: Two great national champions here. Apparently Gulko understood K+P endgames better than did Reshevsky.
Apr-28-19  SChesshevsky: I'm not sure how much Reshevsky liked the Berlin. Seems he preferred more active play. Maybe he was hoping for a quick draw like in his two previous data base Berlin's. But Gulko didn't cooperate.
