  Honza Cervenka: Interesting Rook ending. Geller leaves his Qs passers several times en prise and Bronstein is not taking them. The reason is quite clear: if white Rook leaves the 7th rank, for example by 54.Rxc6, then 54...Ra4+ 55.Kf3 Kg5 with easy win is possible.
Jan-31-10  waddayaplay: 42. ..Rf2 also interesting. If 43. Nxd4 then ..Ra2 and white's pieces are tied down. Black has the idea of playing ..Ra4, ..c5 and possibly Nd6, winning at least the b4 pawn.

Still, it was possibly better than the move played, after which 43. ..Re5! has many serious threats and Bronstein by force ends up at least two pawns down.
