Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-21-04  zb2cr: White's 33rd is the real mark of a master. Most players would grab the pawn and think later. Bernstein sees that grabbing the pawn would allow counterplay by 33 ♖xg6, ♖xg6+; 34 ♔xg6, ♖g8+; 35 ♔xh5, ♖xg2 winning back his pawn and activating his Rook. So Bernstein calmly prevents this, seeing that Black cannot free himself.
Dec-02-05  Averageguy: Great strategical game by Bernstein.
Mar-02-07  Octavia: game 26 in Chernev "Logical chess:Move by move"
Apr-07-07  GrandPatzerSCL: Look how White locks up Black's pawns, effectively demoting Black's bishop to a pawn. I'm sure White wins this game because he was able to use his bishop more effectively than Black.
Jul-06-07  sanyas: Well, it is very, err, logical...

Sep-20-12  Llawdogg: Look at the position after 34 Ree5! The white king is at the head of his army fearlessly leading the crush on the dark squares. That's a sight you don't often see.
Sep-21-12  Llawdogg: That Old Black Magic
Sep-21-12  rapidcitychess: I really love this game. It's pretty shocking how easily black was dominated.
Jan-12-13  JimNorCal: The final position is memorable, four pawns on a side with opposite bishops, yet black is helpless.

  Chessical: White's 27th move is Rae1 - see Chess Notes by Edward Winter #8704- http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/
Jul-21-14  RubinSteinitz: Seems that allowing the knight trade off and not getting the black king into the potential pawn roll in the center did him in. Why not move the black king to d6 and at least attempt a pawn push?
