Feb-20-06  Hobgoblin: What a good scrap.
Jun-10-13  zydeco: Amazing endgame technique by Boleslavsky. The final finesse (I think) is that, with the king on f3, black can't play 62....Qb3 because of 63.Qe7+ Kh6 64.Qf8+ Kh5 65.Qh8# but after 62....Qb7+ 63.Kf2 Qb3 the black king escapes to g4.

23.Bg2 and 25.Qa2 seem like bad mistakes that invite black to invade (better 23.Be2 and 25.Qe2).

Aug-10-13  jerseybob: Great to see these two King's Indian pioneers going at each other. Boleslavsky definitely gets the better of the argument. Strangely, Bronstein loosens his queenside in the same way that some of his hapless victims from games in the mid-40s had done, and he meets the same punishment, although the game is very tight till the very end. 13.b4 looks too loosening, and at some point white should have played d5, maybe on move 15. After black is allowed to play ed, he makes merciless use of the e5 square. Zydeco's suggested improvements on moves 23 and 25 look like temporary stopgaps; white's game is badly compromised by that time.
