1969 US Championship, Last Round

Larry Evans vs. Sammy Reshevsky

New York - 1969

The game which returned the US Championship to Sammy Reshevsky for the first time in 23 years. And what a way to win it too, by defeating the defending Champion with the Black pieces, in a game with an interesting opening, a sacrificial middlegame, and a precisely calculated endgame. Reshevsky had offered a draw, which would have guaranteed a tie for first, on Move 10, but been refused.
