  GrahamClayton: Reshevsky's only loss in a 20 board simultaneous exhibition at the City Club of Cleveland on the 29th of January. The game was unfinished, but was declared a win for Black after adjudication. Moore's full name was EN Moore. Reshevsky finished the exhibition with a score of +17, =2, =1.

The score in the American chess Bulletin (February 19821, p. 24) gives Black's next four moves as:

13...R-K2 (Impossible
16...KR-K1 (impossible if the other rook is akready tgere from move 14).

The fix has been to assume that moves 13,1nd 16 are typos, and to make the sequence the one we now have:


However, it seems to me that a better fix Io assume that Black's 13th and 14th moves were transposed in the score printed in ACB. That would make the sequence:


When there would be no typos in the moves themselves.

May-06-19  RookFile: In the final position, assume black plays 26....d3. There is no stopping that pawn from queening and winning the knight.
