|Dec-16-06|| ||Themofro: Brilliant game by Bronstein, like always. I got Bd3 and Rg1 but was a bit fuzzy on a couple variations from that point, incredible job by Bronstein to calculate it all out over the board like that, and to stick to it even though there were easier ways to win, reminds me of Alekine, always looking for beautiful ways to win even if the game was already won. Good puzzle to go with a great game|
|Dec-16-06|| ||al wazir: Yes, Bronstein could attack like Tal. See Mutchnik vs N Bakulin, 1967 for another example.|
|Dec-16-06|| ||TopaLove: I GOT IT! I AM SO SMART!
It seems Bronstein was better playing as black.
|Dec-16-06|| ||blair45: I got 27. ...Bd3, but missed 28. ...Rg1, which really frosts the cake!|
|Dec-16-06|| ||zb2cr: Thought that 28. ... e2 threatening mate was better. Then 29. Ng3, Qf2; 30. Rxe2 stops the threatened mate. Better luck next time. :(|
|Dec-16-06|| ||greensfield: Got 27...Bd3 but then went down 28...e2 in response to 27.Qxd3 and got nowhere really. After looking at the solution, congratulated myself on finding 27...Bd3! but alas missed 28...Rg1+!|
|Dec-16-06|| ||notyetagm: <goldfarbdj: ... According to it, this game against Bakulin was played in the 32nd Championship, held in Kiev from 1964/12/25 to 1965/1/27;>|
Well, then that means that this Bakulin vs Bronstein game was played in the exact same tournament (1964 USSR Championship at Kiev) as the famous Kholmov vs Bronstein game!
Definitely go check that game out if you have not seen it before. It is included in Nunn et alia's "World Greatest Chess Games".
So in one round Bronstein -wins- with a brilliant combination against Bakulin, while in another round he -loses- to a brilliant combination and incredibly well-played game by Kholmov.

|Dec-16-06|| ||dzechiel: Found 27...Bd3 after a minute or so. As soon as I started to consider the move it became obvious that this was the key, just too much good stuff happening. I wanted to continue with 28...e2, but I will defer to Bronstein.|
|Dec-16-06|| ||GannonKnight: I found 27. ... Bd3, but got too caught up in 28. ... e2 to see Rg1!!. Great move and combination!|
|Dec-16-06|| ||kevin86: Still yet another great attack by Bronstein! This time,he gives up rook and piece to gain a series of discovered checks and crosschecks!|
|Dec-16-06|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: My goodness--I solved this one. The entire game is a fine example of what draws people (including me) to this odd-looking but dangerous variation of the Caro-Kann.|
|Dec-16-06|| ||midknightblue: Hello, I know it doesnt mean squat, but i found 27...Bd3. The rest was awesome.|
|Feb-19-08|| ||tatarch: Wow those two pawns are ruthless at the end...|
|Feb-02-09|| ||peterh105: White sure got in trouble in a hurry. He should have played Bd3 and exchanged the white B's followed by ND2 and trying to bring the N to e4 or at least contest e4. Kh1 and Re1 were wasted. He doesn't mind dropping the b pawn since then he can prepare c4. Whatchathink?|
|Aug-28-10|| ||sevenseaman: Bakulin was careless. An unsound plan. After allowing ..13. h3 he castled short and broke up his pawn structure. A recipe for disaster.|
|May-06-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Great game, by the way!|
|Aug-19-12|| ||Conrad93: It's easy to spot the right moves when you are told there is a winning combination, but I honestly doubt anyone here could create this kind of magic on the board.|
|Sep-26-14|| ||tranquilsimplicity: I could never tire of re-playing the games of this quintessential anti-materialist whose dazzling play and combinatorial expertise has resulted in my addiction to Chess. Bronstein makes Chess rival sex!!#|

Fitting that your post ends with mate!
|Jan-19-15|| ||morfishine: An incredible Game!|
|Jan-19-15|| ||Ratt Boy: I was wondering why not the simple 31...♖xf3+, followed by 32...♖f1+ and it's Lights Out for White.|
Durned shame that Rxf3+ is illegal. Or, maybe not a shame...because the end is beautiful.
|Jan-19-15|| ||kyg16: Amazing game.
For those Spanish speaking users I recommend this video analysis done by genius chess journalist Leontxo García.
|Jan-19-15|| ||Gilmoy: <11..h5 12..h4 13..h3> is Caro-Kann, Knight Hunt Variation!|
"Novelty of stem-game: <10.Be2>", i.e. never before -- nor since!
|Mar-29-18|| ||Ironmanth: Holy crap, what a great game!! Makes every Caro-Kann player's heart sing. Thanks for this treasure.|
