Another draw with the New U.S. Chess Champion Bobby Fischer. Sammy was already perhaps 5-10 years past his prime here... In the early 50s Reshevsky could reasonably have claimed to be the strongest player in the world, if not the World Chess Champion.
Max Euwe said of Fischer, "He likes lively positions. In such positions, Fisher can develop his fabulous skill of looking ahead a great many moves, carefully judging the positions which arise succressively in the course of his calculation."
