|Jul-25-04|| ||azaris: Benko and Bronstein horsing around in the end. |
|Sep-08-05|| ||Resignation Trap: Botvinnik had a rather lengthy note to make while preparing for his match with Bronstein: "Against g3 stuff 'a la Barcza', 'Br' replied ...g6 followed by ...d5. Led to a Grunfeld Defense with c4 and ...c7-c5. 'Br' quite correctly and persistently played for simplification and, exploiting Benko's errors, obtained the better endgame. Clearly exploiting Benko's time trouble, skilfully picked up a pawn. Adjourned in a dead won position. During the resumption, in the first time trouble, went wrong, miscalculated, became rattled (exchanged too much!) and threw away the win. So - he goes wrong during the resumption in time trouble!!!"|
|Sep-08-05|| ||RookFile: Pretty humorous that Bronstein even played 104... f1=N. As soon as he does that, Benko can play anything
he wants, and it's a draw. But, Benko was threatening to take the pawn, and queening obviously doens't work due the knight fork. Leave it to Bronstein to promote to a knight!|
Maybe he was 'hoping' to get white to put his king on a8, his knight on a7,
and line his knights and king up just right, and mate him.

Bronstein vs G Barcza, 1949
Notice anything... similar about the endings?
|Jul-12-10|| ||sisyphus: Benko made the following comment about this game in his Chess Life column:|
<"I recall my first meeting over the board with Bronstein. I escaped to an endgame with one Knight against his two. It was a well-known theoretical draw, even without my Knight. I chased one of his Knights with mine, till the audience started to laugh. At that point he agreed to a draw.">
