  Mateo: Yes, this one was an epic battle! It could be a 'game of the day'. Levenfish played in a simple, direct and efficient way, completely dominating his famous opponent.

The turning point was 25.Nf3? 'underestimating' the simple 25...Qf5 winning a pawn.

I was wondering why Reti did not play 27...Nxe6. But he was right. 27...Nxe6? loses after the nice 28.Nd6!! Qxc2+ 29.Rxc2 Bxd6 30.Nxf7+ Kg8 31.Nxd6.
