Jul-23-10  GrahamClayton: 13.♘bd2 was a mistake, allowing Black to simplify to a superior ending. 13.ab5 was correct.

15.ab5. In Fine vs Reshevsky, 1938, Fine sacrificed a pawn with 15.♗d3, but was unable to save the game.

If Reshevsky tries to trap the Knight by 33..g5, Kashdan has the saving resource 34.h4 ♖g4+ 35.♔f1 ♖h4 36.♘f6, leading to a theoretical draw.
