Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-11  Everett: 23.Bd1! Some variations to look at after <23..Bxa2>

I could easily make the mistake of playing <37.Bxf6?? Ba5+> The rest seems razor sharp until the end. Some nice maneuvering by Bronstein to be able to capture the B with check on move 50, but did Black miss a perpetual at the end? Maybe not, but after <52..Qc2+ 53.Kf3 g4+!?> Black is trying to create greater access to the g- and h-files for vertical checks, without which White may find safety on either g2 or b2

Sep-10-16  zydeco: <Everett> 23....Bxa2 24.Qxa6 and if 24....Bb1 25.Qxb5 white is up a clear pawn. If 24....Bc4 25.b3 Bd3 26.Re3 and the bishop can't protect b5.

With 24....Bf6 I think black is offering to sacrifice a piece: 25.Bc2 Bxd4 26.b3 and he gets connected passed pawns for the trapped bishop.

43....Qd3+ looks promising but doesn't lead to perpetual check. 44.Ke1 Qb1+ 45.Ke2 Qc2+ 46.Kf1 Qd1+ 47.Kg2 Qd5+ 48.Kg1 Qd1+ 49.Kh2
