Grandmaster Samuel Reshev-eky had a rough time in the second week of his match with U.S. Champion Arthur B. Bis-guler. The latter won two and drew two of the four games contested. Reshevsky, who had scored In tha nrst three games of the match, idH leads by 43, Three more games are scheduled at the Manhattan Chess Club in New York. Hans Kmoch is the referee. Examination or the game scores indicates that both players must have been considerably short of time at critical stages. Some of the moves could hardly be explained on any other basis. " , . , , In the third game, as an -in stance, Bisguier moved 30 R-N8, evidently missing the forced checkmate that followed. Re-shevsky's 37Q-Q8 in the fifth game was little better, eince it meant loss of his queen, turning a gooa game into a Hopeless one.
