  plang: 12..Nc6 works out poorly; Pandolfini recommends 12..Bb7 instead.
Apr-30-15  zydeco: 23.Bh5! is a shot - black's moves before then look reasonable but it turns out that f7 is really weak.

It's nice (and relatively rare) to see Reshevsky play sharp, attacking chess.

Jun-18-22  cehertan: Yes, Sammy was really sharp this event.
