Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-31-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik had this to write about this game in his red notebook about Bronstein: "Spanish with ...Be6 (similar to Bronstein vs Botvinnik, 1944 ), only 'Br' played 12. cxd4 (rather than 12. Nxd4). Furman cleverly arranged everything in the center, but 'Br' found some very subtle moves (in a half-open position!!!, where only the pieces were playing!!!) and with variations (2-3 moves!!!) forced Furman to play very accurately, depriving him of counter-chances and retaining some advantage for the endgame (2 islands against 3). Even so, the endgame concluded with a draw on the 61st move. A good game."
