  zydeco: According to Bronstein, white's mistake is moving the wrong rook at move 20.

21.Nfd4 was the last try for advantage. The pawn can't be taken because of 21....Nexd4 22.Nxd4 Qxa5 23.Nxc6! Qxa2 24.Nxe7+ Kh7 25.Rb4 g5 26.Bxg5 g6 27.Rh4+ Kg7 28.Bf6#

Gligoric could have saved a draw with 38.Bd2 and if black exchanges bishops white's king gets to the queenside first.

Bronstein prefers 15.c4 to 15.a5.
