Mar-27-05  TennesseeStud: A great game and a beautiful ending!
Sep-25-08  drukenknight: END GAMES OF 1924. after blacks 33rd move, the tournament book (Alek.) says white makes clever use of the rook exchange, he then claims 33..Nc7 and 33...Nb8 do not work, however 33...dxc4 appears to hold a draw.

34. bxc4 Rg8
35. Rxg8 Kxg8
36. d5 cxd5
37. cxd5 Qd1+
38. Qg1+ Qxg1+
39. Kxg1 Kf7

Funny enuf: Alek says if 33...Nb8 34 Rc1 wins, but no:

34. Rc1 dxc4 (again)
35. bxc4 Nd7
36. Rg1

  GrahamClayton: Reti's play reminds me of a boa constrictor - he slowly advances up the board and limits the Black pieces. Lasker's desperate opening of the g-file is eventually used by Reti to further infiltrate the Black position.

56...♔g8 57. ♗f6 ♔f7 58. ♔xh7 and the White King will eventually capture the Black e-pawn and then promote his own e-pawn.
