  ray keene: in the above variation i wonder whether 31 qf4 instead of bf3 might be a possibility. of course the resource ---bd3 is very clever, the sort of thing a computer will spot. another thought is that white cd repeatedly have tried the bg5 sac from move 21 onwards. could it have been implemented more sucessfully at an earlier stage? i think this kind of idea was just not known at that time since none of the commentators pointed it out as a possibility-anyway i wd be interested in seeing the outcome after qf4 in place of bf3.i also cant help feeling that the practical effect wd have been quite devastating if bronstein had actually played bg5 at some stage.

  ray keene: another thought in the defensive variation given-cd white consider rxb4 as a recapture instead of axb4?
May-12-08
Premium Chessgames Member
  ray keene: yet another thought-after the defensive resource --bd3 is the immediate nf6+ any good?

  ray keene: belay that last idea-i have just seen the tactics which refute it-i am trying to use my own brain here rather than fritz but i have to confess the silicon brain is much faster than my 6 decade old model and probably saw the refutation in a micro second-whereas it took me rather longer.
May-13-08  CharlesSullivan: <ray keene> Thanks for the continued feedback. I am working on some of your ideas. In the line 28.Bg5 hxg5 29.hxg5 axb4 30.cxb4 Rc6, the suggested 31.Qf4 doesn't seem any more convincing than 31.♗f3. Something like 31...Rfc8 32.b5 R6c7 33.Nf6+ Nxf6 34.exf6 Qf8 35.fxg7 Qxg7 gets evaluated as pretty level. I will look more closely at this line soon. Currently, I am looking at 22.Bg5, but proper analysis will require at least 2 or 3 days. Perhaps <Pawn and two> can look at some of the other things.

  ray keene: dont forget the Rxb4 possibility!

  ray keene: also after --qf8 in the most recent line is white obliged to capture at once on g7 or can he try to build up his h file attack first?

  Pawn and Two: <ray keene> Fritz reviewed your new suggestion: 28.Bg5 hxg5 29.hxg5 axb4 30.Rxb4.

At 24 ply, Fritz gave the following continuation: 30...Qc7 31.Bf3 Ne7 32.Kg2 Rh8 33.Nf6+ Bxf6 34.gxf6 Nf5 35.Rh1+ Kg8 36.Rxh8+ Kxh8, with an equal position.

After 36...Kxh8, Fritz indicated the following continuation: (.00) (20 ply) 37.Qf4 Kg8 38.g4 Nh4+ 39.Kh3 g5 40.Qxg5+ Ng6 41.Rxc4 Qxc4 42.Qh6 Qf1+, with an equal position.

May-13-08  RandomVisitor: 28.Ne3 is a solid move that threatens Nxc4.
May-14-08  CharlesSullivan: <ray keene & Pawn and Two> Zappa and Rybka confirm that 28.Bg5 hxg5 29.hxg5 axb4 30.Rxb4 leads to equality. If 30...Qc5 (30...Qc7 is just as good), then 31.Bf3 Ne7 32.Kg2 <no better is 32.♘f6+ ♗xf6 33.gxf6 ♖h8! 34.fxe7 ♕xe7 35.♖eb1 ♗a6 36.♖h4+ ♔g7=> Rh8! 33.Nf6+ Bxf6 34.gxf6 Kg8 35.fxe7 Qxe7 holds (36.Rbb1 Kg7 37.Rh1 Ba6 38.Qe3 Qc7=).
May-14-08  CharlesSullivan: Per Zappa/Rybka, trying Bg5 at move twenty-two looks like this: 22.Bg5 hxg5 23.hxg5 Bh8! <Black is going to un-castle! -- after a deep search, it's the only move I found that maintains equality> 24.Bf3 Ne7 25.Kg2 Rg8 26.Rh1+ Kg7 27.Qf4 Kf8 28.Nh6 Rg7 and now White has nothing better than to repeat the position with 29.Ng4 Rg8 etc. <In this line, White can keep the initiative with 28.♘f6 ♕c7 29.b4 d4 30.cxd4 cxd4 31.♖hc1 ♗xf6 32.exf6 ♗xf3 33.♕xf3 ♘c6 but he never quite achieves equality, always remaining slightly behind in material; for example: 34.a4 ♕b6 35.b5 axb5 36.axb5 ♘a7 37.♕f4 ♔e8 38.♖c4 ♖xc4 39.dxc4 ♔d7 40.♖d1 ♖d8 41.♖xd4+ ♔c8 and White will be satisfied with a draw.>

  Pawn and Two: <RandomVisitor: 28.Ne3 is a solid move that threatens Nxc4.>

See my post of May 11th. The best move Fritz could find at move 28 was also 28.Ne3. I believe you have indicated previously that you use Rybka for your computer analysis.

<ray keene & Charles Sullivan & KingG & RandomVisitor> Hans Kmoch in his review of this game in Chess Review did not give any analysis or alternative moves at move 28, but he did apply an exclamation mark for the move Bronstein made, 28.bxa5!.

It is very interesting to see all of the diverse opinions and analysis regarding White's choice at move 28.

May-14-08  CharlesSullivan: <ray keene> Regarding your query about avoiding 35.fxg7 (in the 31.Qf4 line) and playing for the attack on the h-file, here is the only plausible attack scenario that I could construct that doesn't succumb outright (according to Zappa/Rybka): 28.Bg5 hxg5 29.hxg5 axb4 30.cxb4 Rc6 31.Qf4 Rfc8 32.b5 R6c7 33.Nf6+ Nxf6 34.exf6 Qf8 and now instead of equality after 35.fxg7 ♕xg7, White risks attacking with 35.Bf3 Bd3 <that move again!> 36.Qh4+ <36.♖bd1 ♖c4!> 36...Kg8 37.Rbd1 <37.♔g2 ♗xb1 38.♖h1 ♗h6! 39.♖xb1 ♖c1! with a big advantage for Black> 37...Rc4 38.g4 Bc2 <possibly a little safer is 38...Qb4 with counterattack, forcing liquidation> 39.Rc1 Rf4 40.Re3 Bxa4 41.Rxc8 Qxc8 42.fxg7 Kxg7 43.Be2 Qc5 44.Rh3 <finally> 44...Kf8 and Black is safe enough with an extra pawn. <It seems that White needs one more tempo to make Bg5 a winner.>

  ray keene: so it looks like the Bg5 idea tends to work out to equality-its interesting that no earlier commentators even spotted the concept-to my mind its crying out to be played and i think in practice it might have won.

May-15-08  RandomVisitor: <ray>How was Bronstein situated in this match? would 28.Bg5 have been worth the gamble?
May-16-08  CharlesSullivan: <ray keene> Trying the Bg5 idea at move 27 looked promising because, after many hours of analysis, I find that after 27.Bg5 hxg5 28.hxg5 either 28...Qc5 or 28...Qc7 allows White to eventually emerge one pawn ahead with possible winning chances. However, the third line seems to stop White cold: 28...Rfd8 29.Bf3 Bd3! <always this move!> 30.Qxd3 Qxg5.

The "attack" might continue 31.Kg2 Nh6 32.Rh1 Kg8 33.Nxh6+ Bxh6 and Rybka & Zappa do not see any advantage for White.

  Everett: Perhaps Bronstein remembered the potential of opening the h-file from this game when playing 20.Qh5 in this gem.

  plang: After 5 d3 the position was already new. The development of 5..g6 and 7..Nge7 was a favorite of Botvinniks though in this game it led to him getting an inferior position very quickly. 17 Ne3 was premature; more promising was 17 Qd2..Kh7 18 Nh2..b5 19 Ng4 with better chances for an attack than occurred in the game. 28 bxa?! was an odd choice; 28 b5 would have been better. 33 Rec1 would have been better avoiding Botvinniks strong 33..Rc4 after which Black was better though White did manage to hold the draw.
