Nov-08-07  achieve: It's always nice when your opponent "cooperates" ;-)

Nice finish, though.

Aug-28-10  jerseybob: This was played when the Colle system was popular, and Seitz probably intended to follow up 4.Nbd2 with c3. Reshevsky's f5 changes that plan and he heads for a more regular Queen's Pawn with c4, which calls for a N on c3, hence white's sad 8th move. But maybe white could've justified his QN's position with 6.b3, followed by Bb2, Rc1 etc.

  wwall: Perhaps the losing move is 15.Qc2, allowing 15...f4. Better may be 15.Ne2, and if 15...f4 16.exf4 Bxf4 17.Bxf4 Rxf4 18.O-O. No good is 15.O-O?? Bxh2+! 16.Kxh2 (16.Kh1 Qh4) 16...Qh4+ 17.Kg1 Ng4 (threatening 18...Qh2 mate) 18.Rfe1 Qxf2+ 19.Kh1 Rf6 20.e4 Qh4+ 21.Kg1 fxe4, threatening 22...Qh2 mate.
