Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-10-02  bishop: White tried to win the f4 pawn by sacrificing a piece.Bronstein's counter sacrifice refuted White's play.In the end his light squared bishop became very strong.

  plang: Bronstein on 22 Bf5?! (did White overlook 23..Nxd4?): "Perhaps this move was not the best but as the great Paul Morphy once replied, when asked about a not altogether correct combination that he had carried out:"Gentlemen, but I had to do something!""

After 25 Rxe5? White lost quickly; an unclear position would have resulted from 25 Nxc6..Qxc6 26 Qg2+..Kh8 27 Kh1.

Feb-23-17  Delboy: This game has two minor piece sacrifices and three exchange sacs. The resignation then occurs as the remaining rook is about to be 'exchanged' for yet another minor piece
