  Phony Benoni: The most memorable event of this tournament came in round 14, when three Soviet players (Keres, Geller and Spassky) had White against three Argentinans (Najdorf, Panno, Pilnik). The Argentinans had carefully analyzed a sharp variation in the Sicilian beforehand, and all three played it. The three Soviet players all found a spectacular series of sacrifices and went on to win quickly (See games #134, 135, 136).

  keypusher: Quite a performance by Bronstein!

  keypusher: Of interest only to me: in Bisguier's games, White scored +4-8=8.
Sep-26-14  Ke2: Awesome tournament. +10 =10 from bronstein was amazing. And of course the Argentinian tragedy.
Sep-26-14  Everett: < keypusher: Quite a performance by Bronstein!>

Yes this is one of Bronstein's career highlights.besides the remarkable victory over Keres, he had some other gems as well. I think it helped that he secured Furman as his second for the tournament. I think it shows in his focused play.

<Phony Benoni> Here is a video that in part discusses the "Sicilian Vespers" anecdote you describe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVJ_...

Sep-26-14  Everett: I find it both amazing and typical that a tournament that involves Fischer not at all somehow has an introduction with two links to his games.

Apparently Fischer was the only one that discovered some theoretical improvements on these games. Remarkable.

  Benzol: Actually it wasn't Fischer but Keres who discovered the improvement. See the discussion on the Geller vs Panno, 1955 game.

Great! Let's now change this page to rightfully honor Keres.

The bio doesn't need to be changed- it already credits <Keres> for coming up with the post-Vespers improvement:

"until Paul Keres suggested the improvement 13 ... Rh7 which was later played in Gligoric vs Fischer, 1958 1/2-1/2 and resurrected that Sicilian, Najdorf (B98) line (1)."

Sep-28-14  Everett: Too bad.
Apr-20-15  Howard: Wonder why Gligoric didn't take part in this tournament.

He failed in the Jugoslav championship and didn't qualify for the Munich zonal: http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/...
