|Aug-14-07|| ||Ultra: This is an unbelievable game between two of the titans of chess and no one here has even taken enough notice of it to leave a remark. Hence, I felt I had to leave a note.|
Bronstein's play is very dynamic. IMHO it is nice to see 19th century style chess hold up against the positional titans of the 20th century.
|Aug-14-07|| ||Marvol: Remarkable.
Take any openings book, read what principles it advocates, than have a look at the position after Black's 15th move.
White has not moved even one of his eight queenside units, while Black is fully developed and has one pawn in the centre versus white's none.
Still White wins! I'm gonna sell all of my openings books, they're all useless :P.

|Aug-14-07|| ||Maynard5: Actually, White's position appears to be won, or close to it, at an early stage. White is up a pawn, although Black has a temporary lead in development. But as any textook will argue, in this type of position, if the lead in development does not translate into a winning attack, the extra pawn will become decisive later on. What happens in this game is that Smyslov tries to regain the pawn, but apparently overlooks the fact that after 21. Ne4, his rook on e3 is vulnerable.|

No, I didn't think of Grönloh at the time, but of all the games by NN in this database.

My lips are sealed.
