Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-04  mack: Bronstein's last public game in his one-man war against computers.
Dec-15-04  stenis3: Bronstein's style resembles Michail Tal. Fantastic game by former 4 times USSR Champion,and a true artist.bravo:) Fantastic example of old - school-soviet-chess :))))
Mar-21-05  2ndNature: I must be blind or something... why Black didn't play 26... Qxf2+?

Isn't it just a mate in two thingy?


Mar-21-05  PQB4: Yes it is mate in two. I bet Mephisto played 26. Nh1 as any competent computer would, not 26. Nf1. Then 27. Ng3 and the game score is back on track.
Jan-02-06  seeminor: In your face Mephisto!
Jan-02-06  TopaLove: I have already seen some eletronic chess boards called Mephisto. Is it one of them? I bought one rated 1750, but I donīt think it is even around 1700. Now Iīll buy one which claims to be rated 2000, then Iīll see if itīs true.
Sep-06-07  Karblanca: Bronstein was Tal's idol...
May-25-11  SvetlanaBabe: Yes, 26. Nh1 must have been played not 26.Nf1 (??????) Bronstein was always good at tactics, not so good at strategy much to the delight of GM Botvinnik!
Apr-02-12  Everett: Someone will have to explain the value of 16.Qb1, because the game was not able to convince me of it.

<16.Ng3 and 17.Qe2> looks sensible, with a normal position...

Aug-24-18  fleuret: It's Mephisto Milano Pro (about 2100 elo) : the Fritz's program, bronstein tactically crushed it!
