  Phony Benoni: Reshevsky provides a neat twist on the old Bxh7+ trick. At the end, Black must give up his queen; for instance, 28...Qd7 29.Qh8+ Kf7 30.Nxe5+ Ke8 31.Qh5+. Even worse are 28...Qd8 when the above line leads to mate, and 28...Qxd5 29.Nxe7# with a K+Q fork in reserve just in case.
Nov-22-18  Violin sonata: Perhaps, at the black move 24...♖fd8 was better than ♖f7.
Nov-22-18  JimNorCal: At move 12 or 13 Black's position looks fine but Reshevsky proves otherwise.

Thanks for the variations, PB
