  FSR: Black's play was gross, man.
Sep-01-15  yureesystem: Pawn grabbing is good way to lose quickly, no regard for development or king safety and Reinfeld makes good use for his lead in development and comes with a crushing attack against the black in the center. This is good game to study deeeply.

White threats Rc7+ and mate follows; the only way to stop this is 23...Bd6 24.Qxg7+ Be7 25. Bxe7 Rxe7 26.Qxh8 wins a rook.

Sep-19-16  SeanAzarin: Gross Mismanagement
Sep-19-16  JimNorCal: The 19th move (Rc1) is pretty!
Mar-30-17  SeanAzarin: I. A. Horowitz's observation on the final position and the game:

"Black resigns. White threatens 24 R-B7 ch and mate next move. If 23... B-Q3, 24 QxNP ch B-K2 25 BxB is decisive. An impressive example of incisive punishment of time-wasting Pawn-grabbing."
