May-17-05  suenteus po 147: 41.Bc5! is a fantastic move. I bet Sammy was a little upset to see that right after making the time control.
Sep-28-05  who: To clarify 41.Bc5 Rxb3 42.Bf8+ Kg8 43.Bh6+ with mate next move.
Sep-28-05  who: Was this game adjourned?
Sep-28-05  who: btw sammy was doing fine right till move 40. 40...Nd3 was necessary.
Sep-28-05  suenteus po 147: <who: btw sammy was doing fine right till move 40. 40...Nd3 was necessary.> I don't know if the game was adjourned, but that's why I made my comment about the time control. 40...Ra3 looks initially like a quick "decent move" to avoid running out of time, but it was the worst move he could have made. I hate moves like that, because I realize all my hard work and effort has just been flushed down the drain in one stupid, quick move.
Jul-29-06  sahmattr: I appreciate Bronstein's Tal- like games.

Sep-08-07  D4n: Move # 41, Be7 couldn't been the best move.
Nov-10-09  tonsillolith: What is wrong with <38. c4> followed by <39. Rxe4>?
Dec-12-10  Everett: Smyslov can thank Bronstein for bringing his full attention and strength to his games vs Reshevsky at Zurich.

Jun-22-14  Conrad93: Bronstein making Reshevsky look like a silly child...


Jun-23-14  SimonWebbsTiger: the only person looking like a silly child is you Conrad.

You do realise psychiatrists have found a link between psychopathology and internet trolling, right? Get some Medical help pronto.
