May-07-06  Maynard5: This game is notable for the strength of Black's defensive play. By move 19, Black has set up an impenetrable barricade on the kingside. White's attempt to break through sacrificially is ultimately refuted tactically.

  IMlday: 6..♕e7 and 7..a6 are typical Suttles' 'waiting moves'. The committal 8.g4 is just the type of overplay that Black was waiting for. Suttles' 16..♘h7! effectively reorganizes the oddly placed Knights. Soon Rohde had only a minute or so on the clock with 20 moves yet to play. But Browne/Reshevsky style clock mania chess didn't perturb Suttles at all. Rohde, about 16 when this was played, went on to become a strong GM but ran into serious health problems with cancer and never reached his full potential.
