  GrahamClayton: Nice Queen sacrifice by Reshevsky to set up a "see-saw" with the Rook and Bishop.

  perfidious: An interesting early game with 6.Qc2; in the 1980s, I used to play this myself now and again to avoid the Meran when I got bored with playing the long theoretical lines. Now, I don't know what I'd play, with so much theory in this Qc2 variation!

My guess here is that time trouble may have played a role-the windmill combination is not at all difficult to spot for a strong master, as Shainswit certainly was in his day.

Sep-01-10  Cibator: Many years ago I read Reshevsky's own annotations to this game in his book "How Chess Games Are Won", and don't recollect any mention of his opponent's being in time-trouble. But of course, "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" ....
May-19-15  zydeco: This seems like a classic case of a trap with a hole in it. Shainswit was probably feeling good about things when he played 25....Ne4, 26....Ng3, and 27....e4. Maybe he analyzed as far as 28.Qc3 Nf5 29.Rg3 f6 when black is much better. Reshevsky, not surprisingly, analyzed further and saw that he could just leave the queen en prise with 28.Rg3.
