Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-15  zydeco: Bronstein says he and O'Kelly started the game at 9am and finished at close to midnight.

Bronstein thought he had the game wrapped up with 27.Qe6+ and was very surprised that he had no follow-up (28.Be5 Qd8 leads nowhere). So Bronstein took a step back and decided to play out a superior endgame.

After 56....Rh7 57.Kg1 Rg7 58.Kg2 black is in zugzwang.

If 68....h3 (move 66 was actually 66....h4) 69.g4+ Kg1 70.Rd1+ wins the knight.

  perfidious: While lengthy, this was, of course, not Bronstein's longest game of the event: Bronstein vs C H Alexander, 1954 won the palm.
