  Tabanus: Weird opening! Was this a radio match?

29.f4 Rb2 30.Rb8+ is about -1. After 29.Rb1 Rb3! 30.f4 Bronstein could have played 30...Bd3 +2.5 winning the exchange - why did he play 30...Nec4?

Ulvestad defended well (118 moves!) and probably had a draw by perpetual check, let's say 99.Qb4+ etc.

May-27-08  sneaky pete: <Tabanus> No radio match, the US team visited Moscow after tournaments in Groningen and Stockholm. After 30... Bd3 31.Rxb3 .. looks playable.

  whiteshark: Picture from the game: http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/...

"Has any master ever ventured to annotate this game in depth? Chess Review had just a brief overview:

<Ulvestad played the opening poorly, allowing Bronstein to obtain a strong queen-side initiative. Despite ingenious and resourceful defense on Ulvestad’s part, his game went steadily downhill, and before the first adjournment he had lost a pawn. During the next sitting he lost another pawn, but despite gruesome time-pressure he managed to win back one of the pawns by a swindle. His ultimate downfall resulted from a weak 99th move.>
