  Phony Benoni: When I saw this game in the Pun Voting Booth, I couldn't help but recall Bronstein's classic twin victories, F Zita vs Bronstein, 1946 and Pachman vs Bronstein, 1946. Vaganian was surely familiar with those games as well, and shows himself fully capable of coping with Brosntein's patented fantasy--though it takes a third queen to finally put Black down for the count.

Michelangelo would have been proud.

Nov-16-13  chessicle: I love how Bronstein keeps his KID ♗ right to the bitter end.
Nov-16-13  cunctatorg: I fully agree; marvelous (though not flawless!...) performance by two great human (though not mere mortal) players!

I don't know what demi-Gods (like F or Kor or Kar or Kas ... or Kr or An or C or some quantum electrodynamical composite systems we all possess) do think ... but I really don't care!

  Domdaniel: A beautiful and strange game. Not quite as dazzling as Vaganian's French win against Reshevsky, but close. Fine pun, too.

Black to play 26... I guess that d4pawn has so high potentlal that to promote was the main task. How?

Nov-17-13  solskytz: Very instructive endgame play, with lot of sharp calculation with both players fencing with light speed - as everything hangs on a tempo.
Nov-17-13  solskytz: Two promotions, against two "promotion-wannabies" by the opponent
