Max Euwe vs Svetozar Gligoric (1953)

  Chessical: Bronstein recommended a very imaginative double sacrifice which he thought decisive for Gligoric:

<24...Nxf3!?> 25.Kxf3 Bxg4+ 26.Kxg4 Qh5+ 27.Kg3 Be5+ 28.Kf2 Bxd6; but after:

<29.Rxd6> Qh2+ 30.Bg2 Qxd6 31.Qxc4 Qf6+ 32.Qf4 Qxb2+ 33.Re2; Black has not quite broken through.

Jun-19-05  Boomie: Bronstein's idea seems to yield an equal endgame. <Chessical> notice the improvement 28...♕h4+.
