|Apr-07-06|| ||notyetagm: Very impressive, winning an Interzonal game with Black in 21 moves with a blistering sacrificial attack.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||MrSpock: After 16. Le2 e5 17. Lg4! the game becomes very complicated with some practical chances for white.|
|Dec-14-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: On 15..Nxf4!! Bronstein gives in his book "The sorcerer's apprentice" the following two variations: 16 Bf1 Qg4+ 17 Kh1 Qf3+ 18 Kg1 e5! clearing the way for the manoeuvre 19...Rg6+ and 16 Be2 e5! 17 exf4 Rh6! 18 h3 Qg3+ 19 Kh1 Rxg3+|
Tartakower described Alekhine's play as "sonnenschach", conveying perhaps the splendid impression which Alekhine's combination play made on him. I am inclined to describe the two combinations which Bronstein gives here as a little bit of sonnenschach.
|Jan-20-12|| ||Fusilli: <Ulhumbrus> Yes, but the genesis of it all is 13...Qh4, isn't it? That is the move that sacs a piece. Come move 15, 15...Nxf4! is not too hard to see, but Bronstein planned all along with 13...Qh4!|
|Mar-08-12|| ||Everett: <Fusilli> yes, 13..Qh4 is the beginning, yet 14..Rb6 is great isn't it? Black doesn't really care about his d7 N but he does care about getting his R in the attack and getting White's Q off the a8-h1 diagonal. Of the three moves 13, 14 and 15, I find Bronstein's 14th the real winner.|
|Mar-11-13|| ||Everett: A funny thing just happened when I scrolled through this game with an engine: Bronstein missed a crusher on move 14, the very move I thought was so good. The move is based on the unprotected Rd1, White's poor king position, and the relative positions of White's Q and B.|
BTW <MrSpock> is correct in that <16.Be2> is White's best try to hold.
|Jun-28-13|| ||phil6875: <Everett> Indeed, 14...Ne5 is very strong. I wonder why Bronstein didn't see it, wish he had. I think this is the best line.|
14...Ne5 15. fxe5 Nxc3 16. bxc3 Qg4+ 17. Qg2 Qxd1+ 18. Qf1 Qg4+ 19. Kh1 Qe4+ 20. Kg1 Rfd8 21. Qe2 Rb1 22. Rxb1 Qg6+ 23. Kh1 Qxb1
