|Dec-27-06|| ||Eurotrash: Yup, a quick wednesday one.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||kevin86: An easy Wednesday puzzle-a forced mate in four! This is made even easier in that I've seen the game before-though it must have been about thirty years ago.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||schnarre: That was a nasty way to be defeated.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||YouRang: I found it pretty rapidly once I considered the vulnerability of the white king to mate threats from the bishop (along a7-g1 diagonal) and the queen (Qe1#). I also noticed that the black knight was positioned to give check (an important point if we want to threaten Qe1#).|
Putting the pieces together is easy: (1) deflect the queen from defending e1 with the bishop checks, then use the clearance sac Ne2+ (winning the queen with Qe1# mate threat).
|Dec-27-06|| ||aragorn69: <TrueBlue: I don't want to write that I saw it in 10 seconds because some people may not like it> |
Well, you can brag about it, but I actually saw it in less than <two seconds>. And - in this case - there are no tricky side variations! ;-))
|Dec-27-06|| ||mckmck: I got it. This is the second puzzle i solved. Simple.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||playground player: Gee, got all the moves right away. Am I turning into David Bronstein, you think?|
|Dec-27-06|| ||unclewalter: i'm not a great player, but i would have had to think something was up when david bronstein plays Be6...|
|Dec-27-06|| ||haha: Yay!!!
I got this one in 10 secs.
So that means it's simple. :P
|Dec-27-06|| ||Themofro: A nice puzzle although not that hard for a Wednesday. Would have been interesting to see how Bronstein would have fared if white HAD played 7. Bxf7. Nice mate in four though by Bronstein, not that hard, but nice.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||kbaumen: This was quick for me. 10 seconds or something. Pretty Tuesdayish, nevertheless, a nice puzzle.|

Not really a mate, white can still give up his queen. :D
|Dec-27-06|| ||Themofro: True, but would still be hopelessly lost of course.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||aazqua: Put me down for about 4 seconds. There aren't a whole lot of options here and it's clear where the pieces will have to go.|
|Dec-27-06|| ||laskereshevsky: laskereshevsky: HELLO
From the BRONSTEIN's book " THE SOURCER APPRENDIST" ( the translaction is mine from a french edition...sorry for the possibles mistake).
BRONSTEIN give here he's final comment about a game **BRONSTEIN-PALMIOTTO** played in the 1958 chess olympic games:
<The game was played in the URSS-ITALY match. Cause im a follower of the famous italian classic school, i managed to create an uncompromise attack with my pawns, to demonstrate that even in a "half-open" game is possible to create a combinative style attack.
Several years after, In the 1990 i was guested to partecipate in a ROME tournament. Absolutly unexpected, at least for me, also BOTVINNIK whose there. I asked to the organizers if he was in the player-list. "NO," they answered me, " he's here to receive the GIOACCHINO GREGO PRICE." I asked if he had ever played a game in the classical italian's schoole style...."NO," they answered, "But in one of he's books he wrote that GRECO was a great player...."
Five years far from, im still very amused by this ingenuousness, and im ask to myself if those italians organizers had ever seen one of my games!>
WELL.... for a fate of the destiny....I WAS THERE WHEN BRONSTEIN RAISED UP HE'S GLANGE FROM THE CHESS BORDER AND SAW BOTVINNIK!!!!!......
If you BRONSTEIN's fans (of course, too x me he was a giant...) like it, in a future post, i will give my evidence. Like FORREST GUMP...." I NEED A LITTLE NAP" ......GOOD NIGHT
|Dec-27-06|| ||nimzo knight: GOT IT !!|
|Dec-27-06|| ||laskereshevsky: P.S. excuse me, but x to be honest i had forget a part of the BRONSTEIN's speach.
Posted it between < combinative style attack> and <several years after>|
:<YES, THE ITALIAN CLASSIC SCHOOL's ITS REALLY IMMORTAL!>...I apologize to all the italians, and all the italian classic school's fan...
|Dec-27-06|| ||ALEXIN: Not to much difficult, I think.|
|Aug-07-08|| ||artspec: No point in bothering to say how long it took to find it. It's too simple to any player of intermediate level and above.|
|Aug-28-08|| ||dwavechess: Bronstein concur with rybka 2.3.2 at 14 ply in 9/12 moves.|
|Sep-11-08|| ||dwavechess: With Rybka 3 w32 at 3 minutes per move 10/12 83! for Bronstein, perfect combination from move 7.|
|Apr-09-09|| ||WhiteRook48: nice knight fork|
|Jun-30-10|| ||HannibalSchlecter: Bravo Bronstein! Magic!|
|Jun-30-10|| ||Robed.Bishop: 7. 0-0 is better for white.|
|May-06-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Incredible ... wordless/speechless.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||MaczynskiPratten: In Bronstein's collection he entitles this game "The baton of generations", explaining that 8...Be6 was inspired by his favourite out of all Morphy's combinations. Does anyone know what that game might be?|
Here 8...Be6 is deliciously sneaky as it merely looks like a natural block of White's attack on f7. Who would guess at this point that it is actually to stop White's bishop interposing between a White King on g1 and a Black Queen on e1?!
In Bronstein's book he gives the game as being played out to mate, which feels more artistic.
