Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-09-13  RookFile: This is a typical Reshevsky win. He grabs some stuff, and has his defenses calculated out so that Mednis doesn't get enough counterplay.
May-30-15  CMDMB: I thought a typical Reshevsky win was a positional squeeze!
May-30-15  RookFile: He did that too. The key ingredient is restraint of counterplay.

  Penguincw: If black tries to move the rook and defend the knight with 35...Ra3, then 36.Rd1 Qb4 37.a8=Q Qxb1 38.Qe4+ followed by 39.Rxb1. That's just one of the many finishes here.

  enog: Fischer had a good deal of respect for Reshevsky's ability, which is why he made Fischer's first top ten of all time list. He was a complete player for many decades.

  enog: He roughed up the field tactically in this event, including Fischer.
