Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-06-10  Everett: Brilliant opening play by Bronstein.

Not 7.Nxe4 because of 7..Qe5.

8.b4! deflecting the black Q to a vulnerable square.

12..Qa5 is obviously the move played.

14.0-0! White feels the better development, safer king, superior harmony are worth the piece.

  zydeco: Bronstein was improving on 7.Nxe4 from this game: Nikitin vs Furman, 1959 when black pocketed a pawn and was better.

Moves 8 through 12 are a fun sequence.

If 16...Ne5 17.Qg5+ f6 18.Qxg7 Re8 19.Qxf6+.

17...d6 might be a better defense, holding onto the piece.

Oct-27-16  sudoplatov: 7.Ne4 seems to be the mainline (as much a rare sideline has a main). Then 7.... Qe5 8.Nb5 Qe4 9.Be2 (a bit better in win %age than 9.Qe2.)

7.Ndb5 branches off into a bunch of single games on one of the online databases.
