Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-22-16  suenteus po 147: I like Reshevsky's handling on the opening. He employs the ultra-solid Colle system to develop naturally, but begins building up pressure along the e-file to eventually explode black's kingside. Of course Reshevsky's own kingside explodes along with it after some interesting exchanges in the middle game. Not sure I understand the resignation. Can't the knight retreat to e6 or g6? If it's white's pawn majority, why doesn't he resign sooner?
Mar-22-16  RookFile: He might have resigned sooner. What was the time control? Maybe he blitzed out some moves near the end, hoping for a trap.

  perfidious: <suenteus> Once the knight retreats, rooks come off, leaving White with two extra pawns and bishop vs knight on an open board.

Not at all difficult for any competent player to win, much less a world title contender.

Mar-22-16  suenteus po 147: <RookFile> & <perfidious> Thank you both for your assessment. I guess I need to study these kinds of endgames more closely.
Mar-23-16  Granny O Doul: Quite possibly neither player was 100% sure the time control had been reached and so White blitzed out a few more to be safe and Black too because why not.
