  OhioChessFan: What was Bronstein thinking with Bg5? It brought the Black Queen into play without loss of time. And I would have definitely tried 20 Qf5. g3 looks like the losing move.
Oct-29-05  bishopawn: Good question! I take note of the classic value of rapid development as done by Flohr. I guess he has "taken the floor". Ha ha. Okay. I know. Stick with my day job.
Nov-24-10  Xeroxx: Is white really lost here. Or did white run out of time?

  Sastre: White seems to have decent drawing chances after <36.Kf2 Ng2 37.Rxh5+ Rxh5 38.Kxg2 Re5 39.Be4>.
Jan-07-15  CMDMB: Rather than 38...Re5 black has Rd5! Followed by doubling rooks and penetration by Rd2 cannot be stopped which looks decisive for black. Against a weaker player perhaps white can try to hold a draw but I'm confident a strong master like Flohr would have the technique to finish off the game.
