Bronstein vs Larsen, 1964

<May-19-04 Resignation Trap: A few months earlier, these two players met at the Amsterdam Interzonal, and they produced an extremely complicated and much-analyzed game: Bronstein vs Larsen, 1964

According to Larsen, Bronstein still had a mathematical chance to advance to the Candidates Matches after that loss, but he became disheartened, and ended the Interzonal with none of his usual flair.

Larsen attributes his victory in the present game to his earlier win at Amsterdam. "Some wins yield more than one point!" >

Apr-10-10  Everett: Larsen was a master of these Benoni structures, and even Bronstein was not able to handle the former's innovations.
Aug-01-13  jerseybob: I couldn't believe it at first, but 51.Qf4 seems forced. If 51.Kg2,Nh2! Bronstein certainly does seem pre-occupied during this game, while Larsen plays with a purpose.
