Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-26-10  TheRavenPK: Beautiful game by Réti. In my opinion, Black's mistakes were 14..Ng4 and 15..Qa5, causing that one of the rooks had to leave the 8th rank, and also the knight had to go at the edge of the board, or else if 17..Nf6, Black would stay with damaged pawn structure right in front of his king.

Could someone stronger than me correct me, or add something?

Feb-11-21  Stolzenberg: <TheRavenPK> After 14. f4 Black must urgently reduce the white pressure or organize a counterplay, but 14. ... Ng4 found the strong answer 15. Ne4. Instead 14. ... a6, 14. ... h6, 14. ... Qc7 or even 14. ... Qb6 should seriously be considered, for example.

15. ... Qa5 deserves even a "?". Instead 15. ... Qb6 should be worth to think about.
