Feb-16-04  refutor: this was the radio match, no? where is the other game?
Feb-17-04  drukenknight: santassier must have been awfully strong at this pt. to have lasted that long with him.

Feb-17-04  Resignation Trap: Santasiere's Folly was much more effective against Reinfeld than against Bronstein:

Santasiere vs F Reinfeld, 1937

Feb-17-04  drukenknight: Wow this is way better game than the Reinfeld game. This may be fun to analyze, Look at move 23 why does white feel he has to move the Q? Cant he have some fun w/ the Rook sack on c7? What if 23 b5 Nd5? or...?

Look at move 29 why is he compelled to take the pawn with the R?
