  beatgiant: Is something wrong with the score of this game? Otherwise, did both Bronstein and Korchnoi miss the obvious and seemingly crushing 41....Qxe3?

  chessgames.com: Thanks for pointing this out. We did some research and found that 41.Qe4 was played (not 41.Qe3??)
Jun-28-08  apexin: interesting game.
Jun-28-08  Smothered Mate: 46. f3 seems to leave the white king too exposed.
I think 46. Qd3 would have been better.
Jul-20-11  makinavaja: Well...After 41...Qxg3, 42.Qxf5 wins inmediately for white.

  zydeco: Bronstein missed 28....Rxb5. There may have been a way to hold the endgame.
Aug-07-17  Granny O Doul: I'm missing it too. What happens on 29. Qxb5?

  tpstar: 28 ... Rxb5! 29. Qxb5? Ne3+ wins the Queen.

Interesting major piece endgame, then a nice Q vs Q finish.
