Reuben Fine (1914-1993), an American grandmaster, was among the top eight players in the world from the 1930s to early 1950s.  Despite all his chess success, he never won the U.S. Championship and only one New York State Championship (1941).  Here is a game played at his first New York State Championship where he must have calculated at least 15-20 moves ahead to know that he was winning.  He lost a lot of material but realized that his advancing pawn would help him win the game as it threatened to become a Queen.
