  naresb: Nice game, typical Reshevsky school chess.
Oct-14-18  RookFile: 25. Qa7 was an unusual choice. I'm not sure Capa would have played like this.

  naresb: 25. Qa7 a penetration deep inside opponent camp, need calm n cool head to defend in right earnest manner!

28. Qf3, 31. Bc4 both forcing moves involving pin induced threat to seize initiative, 29. Bd3, 32. Re1 both forcing moves created local superiority of force, maximised the piece activity to it's fullest!

Oct-16-18  RookFile: Well, you have to hand it to Reshevsky, Stockfish says 25. Qa7 is the best move on the board and says it's like +1.2 advantage for white.

  naresb: Agreed, that's where Black began to blunder.
