  Mendrys: Gem of a game by Bronstein. For most 10...c5! is counter intuitive. It weakens the d pawn and gives up hope of controlling d5. This same c pawn later proves decisive in allowing black to infiltrate white's position.

  Garech: Incredible game by Bronstein - triple pawn sac to open lines! Impressive stuff.

  Mendrys: This game is featured in The Sorcerer's Apprentice which I would highly recommend for any chess enthusiast.
Oct-11-14  tranquilsimplicity: What a magnificent strategy! The quintessential anti-materialist proves again and again that "Position is before material"; loosely translating as 'brains over brawn'.#
Oct-11-14  tranquilsimplicity: Or quality over quantity.#
