Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-25-12  Ulhumbrus: Reshevsky's comment on the move 26...Be5 is <White's troubles are now starting. Black's threat of gsining control of the g file cannot be met successfully> After both of the players have played a rook to the g file, White's rook having moved to g1 and Black's rook having moved to g8, Black is able to move his bishop to h2 attacking White's rook on g1 whereas White is unable to play his bishop to h7 so as to attack black's rook on g8. For this reason it is Black who wins the contest for possession of the g file.
