  Gypsy: The move of this game is 23...Be6! The Black trap was already set but White failed to cooperate. So what does one play? Bronstein moved ♗ away from its target and faked pressure on the f-file. The rest is the game.
Jul-25-05  Resignation Trap: In his red notebook about Bronstein, Botvinnik wrote: "Spanish with 3...f5. Szily's play was poor (and old-fashioned) - with only his queen. It could have been expected that there would be an exchange. But 'Br' (under the influence of the previous day's results!) played, like Konsky, tight-fistedly, and Szily essentially escaped.

A careless move by Szily - and 'Br' skilfully but routinely sacrificed a piece and gave mate.

A poor game, but he can bite."

Bronstein lost the previous game: T Florian vs Bronstein, 1949 . And "Konsky" = Alexander Konstantinopolski

Aug-02-05  Averageguy: An interesting mating pattern, a bit like a cross between the swallow's tail's mate and the eppualette mate. Does this one have it's own name?
Jul-14-06  Whitehat1963: Here's a decent puzzle after 35. Qe1. Game also features the Opening of the Day.
