Dec-06-04  InspiredByMorphy: Strange Bronstein would pick losing his queen over a pawn or two. 18.Kd1 or 18.Rc1 looks like it would have prevented it.

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> But Bronstein played the Goering Gambit, where you win brilliantly or else go down in flames! 18. Rc1 Nxg2+ & 19 ... Nxf4 gives Black an easy endgame, while 18. Kd1 is out. ;>) But White got two pieces, the Pd6 and great play for the Queen, although Black pulled it out nicely (starting by mobilizing the Queenside Pawns with tempo - very clever). I like 17. Qb3 better; what do you think?
Dec-07-04  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Agreed. I was looking at 17.Qb3 dxe4 18.O-O-O , but 18.Nxe4 is much safer and better, although black then castles. 17.Qb3 gives white a good position.

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> Looking again, Bronstein probably avoided 17. Qb3 due to 17 ... de 18. Nxe4 Qe6 getting Queens off (19. Qc2?? f5) while Black stays a Pawn up. I don't know this line, since I prefer 4 ... Nf6, but it looks like trading White's KB for Black's QN (11 ... cxb5 12. hxg4) really diminishes White's attacking chances.
Dec-07-04  InspiredByMorphy: <tpstar> Im trying to guess what youd play after 4. ...Nf6 5.e5 . 5. ...Nd4?

  tpstar: <InspiredByMorphy> 4. c3 Nf6 5. e5 Ne4 6. Qe2 f5 7. ef d5 with lively play. The early ... d5 frees Black's game (just like the Two Knights). Here's one of my favorites in this line = J Mondragon vs V Palciauskas, 1985
Dec-07-04  InspiredByMorphy: Thanks for the input. Sorry about the typo - I meant to type 5. ...Ne4 . Your 4. ...Nf6 declining the gambit is a whole new approach Im looking forward to studying. That game is great by the way.
Jan-12-12  King Death: This game wasn't played in a Soviet championship, it was played in the annual USSR-Yugoslavia match.
Apr-28-15  DrGridlock: After 16 Bd4, White doesn't have any options to stay in the game (-1.4 computer eval). His alternative was 16 Nd5 where after:

16 ... Nxe3
17 Nxe3 o-o
18 Nd5

Black is a pawn up, but White has better piece development and initiative. The computer says that Black's material should in the end be worth more (-.5 eval), but those are frequently the types of positions in which Bronstein's opponent never got to "the end."
