Nov-15-03  Brian Watson: hombre chess
Oct-28-05  Averageguy: A brilliant game that deserves nore kibitzking. According to The Sorcerer's Apprentice bronstein had expected 5...f5 and he had prepared 6.exf5 Bxf5 7.d4 e4 8.0-0 exf3 9.Re1+ with a strong attack.
Jun-04-06  madlydeeply: Bronstein keeps a cool head and thwarts a Super-Nezh attack.

  chancho: Superlative play by both players, but Bronstein saw further in the end.
Mar-01-07  Billosky: Fantastic strategic struggle!! Where did such no-holds-barred chess go??
Apr-01-12  nasmichael: Maybe Morozevich is doing things like this now...
Apr-02-12  rilkefan: Per stockfish, 20...Nf6 and white is +0.4 after 21.Nf2 (depth of 27). It evaluates 20...Nd4 as +3.5 immediately and likes it less from there. It says 22...Nd3 23.Qd3 would have been +7 as the Rd8 falls too and black has no attack since white can just take on d4 if need be.
Mar-21-14  tranquilsimplicity: Aside from the Masters of old, 3 GMs loved this kind of adventurous, creative, combinatorial Chess; the 2 players in this game, and Tal. #
Feb-23-16  zydeco: Very beautiful chess. Is 24.Nf3 really necessary? I would have played 24.Bxd8 immediately.
