Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-06-09  talisman: Ya knooooow, the Petrof in the hands of bronstein just doesn't seem like the Petrof in the hands of... .
Jul-06-09  chillowack: Whatever that meant.
Oct-17-09  Everett: Why 22..Bxh3?! Bronstein may have been up a pawn, but his bishop remarkably has no squares (and the R is thus limited as well), and he rashly returned the material in hopes of freeing his game.

Even so, he never gets his three passers moving, and the R remained buried in the corner.

Dec-25-09  jerseybob: How about 22..Nb4!? instead?(I originally posted 22..Nf4 but suddenly noticed 23.Kf2! in response).

  profK: Not one of Bronstein's best efforts...22...Bh3 was rash and highly optimistic.
May-12-17  Saniyat24: Bronstein must have lost tempo somewhere or Stein gained tempo...Bronstein could not execute the finishing touches...Stein grabbed the iniatiative(he was positionally better)...and like a skilled surgeon, finished his operation...!

  zydeco: I like 17....Bd2! The machine says that black is very slightly better after 22....Rg3.
