Mar-07-11  JamesT Kirk: 20.Qg6!! BOOOM!!!
Apr-20-11  ughaibu: Whiteshark: if you require at most 20 moves for qualification as a miniature, then this game itself isn't one.
May-06-11  LIFE Master AJ: WOW!!! Wowie, wow-wow, wowzers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May-06-11  LIFE Master AJ: I think I like it.
May-06-11  LIFE Master AJ: Poor Geller must have thrown up all over the chess board. (The lad had to have been in deep shock.)

Feb-06-14  mathlover: Good game
Sep-27-14  tranquilsimplicity: Jeeesusss! What did Bronstein have against Geller? Bronstein destroyed Geller in a similarly dazzling fashion in another game. Simply stupendous!!#
Oct-05-14  tranquilsimplicity: Ha..ha..ha..ha..ha! What? This game is the adorning jewel of Bronstein's Crown.#

  Fusilli: Bloody! Blood all over the board! Really, really bloody!
Nov-24-14  tranquilsimplicity: Bronstein: The artist.#
Sep-06-15  N.O.F. NAJDORF: To Everett: Botvinnik was Jewish, too! The allegation is that Bronstein was asked to lose to Botvinnik because the latter was a darling of the Soviet Establishment.

  NeverAgain: The final position may have inspired Geller's win in Fischer vs Geller, 1967 six years later, where we have a flipped mirror image of the pawns-and-Queen configuration around the besieged King.

  Alex Schindler: that knockout punch deserves a gold coin shower, if Marshall's did.

  perfidious: <N.O.F. NAJDORF: To Everett: Botvinnik was Jewish, too! The allegation is that Bronstein was asked to lose to Botvinnik because the latter was a darling of the Soviet Establishment.>

Botvinnik was Soviet Man first and foremost, his Jewishness being an accident of birth.

Feb-29-16  The Kings Domain: Reminds me of another famous queen move by Marshall which was lights out for the opponent. Bronstein's best are delightful as they are inspiring.
Apr-22-16  Everett: <Sep-06-15 N.O.F. NAJDORF: To Everett: Botvinnik was Jewish, too! The allegation is that Bronstein was asked to lose to Botvinnik because the latter was a darling of the Soviet Establishment.>

I know that. Try reading my post again.

Feb-19-17  Ringingtheking: 20.Rf7 was also a considerable move.

  zydeco: Wow. Geller didn't lose a lot of games in 20 moves.

  mjmorri: I wonder how much time Geller spend on 18...de3. That move carries a lot of responsibilities. Perhaps he was preoccupied with trying to trap White's b7 Rook or with creating a pawn tsunami in the center.

  chancho: Bronstein sought to create something artistic in every game he played.
