  SteinitzLives: Wow! White plays 1 a3 and hangs the exchange on move 13. Black misses mate in one on move 26 but at least finds it a move later when white misses it, again! This is the U.S. Championship?

Let's please place a massive asterisk next to not only this game but this tourney. Next to the asterisk please write "speed tourney, with many rusty players", or better yet, simply, "arcade chess".

Post wrap up article:

It appears that Getz opened 1.a3 with the White pieces at every opportunity in this tournament.
