Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-03  InspiredByMorphy: Very well played by Bronstein. His pawn on e6 is a weapon.
Feb-12-05  aw1988: White "triangulates" with the queen. Lovely Bronstein effort.
Aug-01-05  sitzkrieg: 16..Ne6 17 Rf7ch Kh8 18. Nf6 Ng5 19. Qxg5 Qxg5 20. Rh7 checkmate
Aug-01-05  sitzkrieg: 23 ..Kg8 24. Rg6ch Kf8 25. Qg7ch Ke8 26. Qf7ch Ke8 27. Rg8 checkmate
Aug-01-05  sitzkrieg: I wish my opponents played this opening like black did here..
Sep-21-06  Poisonpawns: Beautiful game for students to learn capablanca`s maxim: Position before material.Black was WAY to greedy in this game,did he not learn from all those Kings gambit games from the 1800`s? :-)
Sep-21-06  TrueFiendish: Dubinin could have spared himself the last few moves.

  plang: Nice effort by Bronstein - he made it look easy. Kasparov says 7..f3 may be playable.

  KingG: Very nice game, in the style of the 19th century.
Aug-25-10  Ulhumbrus: 19 e6!! supports the seventh rank invasion Rf7+! following which White's Queen joins the attack by Qc3+, whereupon Black has to give up his Queen and both minor pieces for White's Rook.
Aug-25-10  Nezhmetdinov: I'm with sitzkrieg
May-06-11  LIFE Master AJ: According to several books, Black resigned after 25.Qf5+.

This is Game # 21, (page # 49) of the book, "The Golden Dozen," by Irving Chernev.

Sep-24-14  tranquilsimplicity: <Poisonpawns> Thank you for that advice namely "Position before material". And not only did Capablanca observe that, but Paul Morphy was the King of the Open Chess game precisely because of this "truth", which he discovered long before his contemporaries! Morphy's games exemplify this beautiful maxim, "Position before material!" #
Sep-12-16  drollere: compare this game to bronstein v. koblents and bronstein v. panov.

without d6, black's choice to defend f7 with the R seems costly compared to Nh6.

it's amusing that black never has the tempo to drop the hammer with g3 and Qh2#. despite that, his king defends those two pawns to the bitter end.
