Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-11-11  Everett: The system with ..exd4 and ..d5 was first played by Flohr. Levenfish vs Flohr, 1947

By move 41, it seems Bronstein has a sure win by judiciously pushing his tandem of pawns, 41..a3 and 41..b4 immediately followed by Rb2 or Rb1 depending. Of note, once the pair of pawns get to the 6th/3rd rank, Black can sac the exchange to show the strength of two pawns over the rook.

With move 43, Bronstein began moving away from rewarding himself with a point from a well-played middlegame.
