  Petrosianic: This is from the penultimate round of the Interzonal. Bronstein is looking really good here after the b5 pawn break, but can't manage to bring the full point home. Maybe something like 36. Nc3 might have kept the pressure up longer. Something like 36. Nc3 Qa5 37. Ncxd5 Nc7 38. Nb6 is uncomfortable for Black.

Had Bronstein managed to win this game, he wouldn't have been in a Must Win situation in his legendary game against Cardoso a round later.
