Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-02-14  zydeco: It's surprising that Bazan didn't play 21.Nd2, which seems so natural. 21.Rxa4 straightens out black's pawns, and white's knight ends up awkwardly developed on a3.
Jul-02-14  RookFile: He figured that the way he did it allowed him to get his rook to d1 before black could get his rook to d8. What he didn't see coming was Reshevsky's 27....a3!

  plang: 5 Bg5 was a new move; Reshevsky's response with 6..h6 and 7..g5 seem to give Black a good game.

21 Nd2..Ke7 doesn't look any better; White will have difficulty mobilizing his pieces.

Reshevsky was critical of 26 Nc2 (allowing 26..Rb4) recommending 26 Rd2 followed by Kd1 and Kc2.
