Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-07-08  Mendrys: A brilliant game by Bronstein. It's hard to imagine black's e pawn staying on the board much longer after 19..e4. He ends up with the ultimate prize however in a neat finish. Bronstein's creativity is a joy to watch.

  zydeco: In time pressure, Bronstein missed the simpler 35....Nxf4.

Bronstein says that, with seconds left, he had no time to calculate the consequences of 38...e2! but played based on instinct.

Pachman annotates this game in Modern Chess Strategy as a model of how to play with a backward pawn.
