  Chessical: A truely brilliant, yet little known, game by Bronstein. He establishes a pawn wedge <d6-e5-f4>. He sacrifices a pawn, topping this off with the exchange to increase the power of the d6 pawn. Finally, Bronstein sacrifices his Q to occupy the 7th rank with his R.

A real grandmaster's game, made even more impressive by considering the strength of the opponent.

One winning line is: 43.Kh2 Kh6 44.Re4 Qb2 45.Rce3 Rg8 46.Rh4+ Kg6 47.Rg4+ Kf7 48.Rxg8 Kxg8 49.d7 Qb6 50.Rd3 Qd8 51.Rd6 Kf7 52.Nd4

May-31-09  Brown: This game is given as the model game for the modern handling of this variation in the book "Winning Chess Middlegames" by Ivan Sokolov.

Also analyzed is this game with Najdorf.

Jun-29-17  zydeco: Bronstein was in his splatter phase at this time and could come up with some truly strange ideas. Here he plays reasonably and creatively.
