|Dec-11-02|| ||PVS: The second and decisive tiebreak game of the 1950 Candidates match. For a prologue see game thirteen Bronstein vs Boleslavsky, 1950 |
8...Bf8 wins a second pawn and things get more difficult for white in the next couple of moves.
|Dec-11-02|| ||Sabatini: The queenside castling opened up white to attack I think. He needed to get back a pawn. |
|Dec-11-02|| ||Vilkacis: 6. Nf3 Nh6 7. Qxe6+ Bxe6 8. Nxd4 gets back one pawn and maybe a second. |
|Dec-12-02|| ||Sabatini: Is 11. Be3 better for white? |
|Dec-13-02|| ||PVS: 11. Be3 looks excellent for white. 11...Qh4 12. Qxh4 Rxh4 13. Bg5 and white wins. |
|Dec-13-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: PVS, you would perhaps be less enamoured of 11. Be3 if black were later to play 13...Bh6, nicht wahr? |
|Dec-13-02|| ||judokausa1: I don't like 11. Be3 for white at all. The move seems to reactive instead of proactive. Black simple moves 11... Qf5 and White's pieces begin to take on a purely passive role. The kingside pieces are going to have difficulty developing to useful squares with the pawn on e5. meanwhile black is going to quickly develop his pieces on the queenside and start a powerful attack. Which is what happened anyway but Bronstien knew that he had to be active and hope black lost his way. |
|Dec-13-02|| ||PVS: 11... Qf5 is deadly as judokausa1 points out; and Kulla Tierchen is correct that in stating even if black misses that, 13...Bh6 spoils it all for white anyway. However, 11. Nb5 still needs to be improved upon. |
|Dec-13-02|| ||ughaibu: For me it's a boring game. The kind of thing that is subject to home analysis. Just forcing variations, boring. |
|Dec-13-02|| ||Vilkacis: Home analysis as in opening preparation? |
|Dec-13-02|| ||Ghoul: This is a critical game, the winner plays for the world championship. I am not surprised black prepared something for the opening. It is the wild play in their previous game which is surprising to me. |
|Dec-14-02|| ||ughaibu: Vilkacis: Yes, that's what I meant. |
|Dec-14-02|| ||Vilkacis: Yes, well I forgive Bronstein in this case, and in general he was less guilty of this than any top player. |
|Dec-14-02|| ||Kulla Tierchen: The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. |
|Dec-14-02|| ||refutor: what's wrong with home preparation? to be a top player you've got to work hard at home and at the board |
|Dec-14-02|| ||ughaibu: Sure but it doesn't necessarily make for entertaining chess. |
|Dec-14-02|| ||judokausa1: of note is this game Vlastimil Hort vs Jesus Nogueiras 1/2-1/2. in this same postion Hort played 11. Be2 Rh4 12. Qxh4 Qxh4 13. g3! and the queen is trapped. Clever but I am generally unimpressed with draws by white. |
|Mar-11-04|| ||TrueFiendish: I don't know how this could be called boring chess, unless one wanted to be overly exacting and obstreperous. It's easy to become pedantic when one's task is to merely observe. |
|Sep-07-05|| ||Resignation Trap: Bronstein played a few more games between this and his 1951 match versus Botvinnik. For those games, go here: Game Collection: Bronstein's final stretch before The Match .|
|Jun-09-08|| ||whiteshark: Bronstein the sly dog, never misses a trick. Here he outfoxed Boleslavsky and got a very comfortable position after only 11 moves. Psychologically very clever. Remember they have played this <4.Bd2> French in the last (12th) game of their regular match Boleslavsky vs Bronstein, 1950|
And now this.

Analysis by Fritz gives Qh5 as black's best reply to Be3. After 11 ... Qf5, 12 Bb5+ c6, Rf1 it's black's pieces that are on the run.
The only time in the Chessgames database that Be3 was played in this position, black retreated the queen to f5, and white responded Be2. The 1985 game between Schiller and Thomas was eventually drawn.
|Jun-18-08|| ||DrGridlock: <judokausa1: of note is this game Vlastimil Hort vs Jesus Nogueiras 1/2-1/2. in this same postion Hort played 11. Be2 Rh4 12. Qxh4 Qxh4 13. g3! and the queen is trapped.>|
The 1986 Hort/Nogueiras game was drawn. The same position was reached in Escolana/Bronstein in 1993, and Bronstein pushed the position to a black victory.

Abrašo from Brazil!

|Jun-29-14|| ||offramp: "Fingerslip Variation, Kunin Double Gambit" has a massive ring of no-compromise to it! I think both players wanted a resolution to this long-standing dead-heat about who was to play Botvinnik.|

It's actually an inferior version of 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb5 4. a3.
At least with that variation white can keep his d4 pawn, even though white does get rather cramped.
