Aug-19-06  MarioBalibrera: 32 Be3+ is slightly faster. ;-)
Sep-22-09  birthtimes: The essential preconditions for the knight sacrifice on e6 on move 21 were definitely in place: White has control of the open center files, and Black is partly undeveloped and scattered, with its King still in the center. According to opening theory, better for Black is 8...Be7 or 9...Be7.

  perfidious: Black maintains a material advantage to the end, but his bereft king lacks shelter in the face of inevitable mate.

Nice attack in the style of Tal.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Rueben Fine annotated this game in one of his books and nearly ran out of "!!" by the end. If I remember correctly, his favorite move was 24.b4, a quiet little move that makes a lot of noise.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I remember seeing Fine's annotations to Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907. He was very liberal with the exclams. "...RxN!! ...R-Q7!!! ...R-R6!!!!"
Apr-11-16  Gambito23: El libro de Reuben Fine es "Ajedrez mundial", publicado en la década de los 50.
