  wwall: If, 27.Bxd5, then 27...cxd5 28.Rxc8 gxf4 (28...Rxc8? 29.Nxd5 Qe6 30.Qxe4 Qxe4 31.Nf6+ and 32.Nxe4 should win for White) 29.Rxf8+ Qxf8 30.Nxf4 Bxf4 31.Qxf4 bxa4 32.Qc7 Qd6 33.Rc1 Qxc7 34.Rxc7 Bb5 35.Rc8+ Kg7 and it looks pretty even.

Perhaps 54...b4 is better. After 55.Rb5 Ke6 56.Rc6+ Kd7 57.Kxf4 Rxg2 58.Rxb4 Kd6 59.Ke3 Rg1 60.Rb2 Re1+ 61.Re2 Rg1 62.Kd3 Kd5 it still looks difficult for White to win easily.

Mar-19-13  Everett: 10.Qf3, another Bronstein idea.
Dec-05-15  zydeco: Shows what I know. I thought white was in serious trouble around move 33, with the knight offsides, but Bronstein had (presumably) already seen that black's central pawns fall like dominos.
