Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-01-14  zydeco: Strange play by Bronstein from about move 15 to move 20.

Probably 24.Bxf6 is a strategic error. 24.Be5 and 25.f3 and I think white is close to equal.

29....e5 and 31....e4 is a nice maneuver to cut off the rook's attack on a4. If 30.Rb4 Rxb4 31.axb4 Rb5.

It's strange to not play 32.....Kg6, but I guess Bronstein's point is that the doubled f-pawn has no value at all: better to sacrifice it and gain a tempo with ....h5 and ....Kg6

Apr-01-14  Poulsen: In the final position white will have to give his rook to stop the h-pawn - f.x. 42.Rf5,Rb7 43.Rh5,Rh7 etc.. Even though white can get a free pawn on the a-file it won't be enough.
