Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-22-05  Brown: 6...Bg4?! is another experiment of Bronstein's. Besides this dubious idea, 12...c5 gets blown up much in the same fashion as in Black's game with Tal.

Tal vs Bronstein, 1982

Apr-22-08  Alphastar: <Brown> what? labeling 6. ..Bg4 as dubious is bilge. In fact, 6. Nf3 can be regarded as a small inaccuracy because it allows 6. ..Bg4.

I do not like 9. ..e6 (I prefer O-O-O or ..e5 immediately, not this modest setup) and I can agree that 12. ..c5 may not have been in black's best interest.

May-20-09  Brown: <Alphastar> Well, I disagree. It slows down development on the K-side, loses a tempo to h3, and "forces" white to play Be2 which is what he wants to play in this variation anyway.

12..c5 may be played because this bishop is hanging out on g4 unprotected, and the Q- has some lateral threats there.

e6 makes more sense if the bishop was played to f5.

I can agree that e6 may not be best on move 9.

Jun-03-10  Everett: I wonder if Bronstein considered 14..h5 here. I imagine it doesn't work, for if it did, he would be just the one to play it...
