May-13-05  soberknight: White, of course, evens the material with 16 Ng5+. A short draw, even before Bronstein became a GM!
May-21-08  devioustalfan: moves 4... and 5. are an interesting way to open the center up.
Feb-14-11  David2009: Bronstein vs Gorenstein, 1940 is an entertaining short fraw. <soberknight: (May-13-05) White, of course, evens the material with 16 Ng5+> 16 Ng5+ Kh8 17 Nxe4?! is dubious - Black gets on top with Bf5!. White can force the draw with 16 Ng5+ (or Nh6+) Kh8 17 Rxf8+! Bxf8 18 Nf7+ and draw by repetition. But not 17 Nf7+?? Rxf7! and Black wins a piece for the exchange and is poised to win the exchange back. Crafty End Game Trainer link to the final position
