Oct-15-20  RookFile: I realize there are legitimate openings like the King's Indian where white moves a lot of pawns in closed positions, but Seidman was asking for trouble by making so many pawn moves with the situation still fluid - against a world class player.
Oct-16-20  SChesshevsky: <...But Seidman was asking for trouble by making so many pawn moves...>

How true! Appears Reshevsky gains the extra pawn by efficiently using the hole on e4 and every diagonal pin. Then forces Seidman out of position from dodging exchanges.

Wonder how long this win took?
