  keypusher: Marovic and Parma call White's thirteenth move "original and strong," adding that Black cannot castle because of Re2 and Re7. Would be interesting to see what a computer thought.

White's 31st move is very pretty.

Apr-19-12  Everett: 5.e5 seems to first played here. Another idea from Bronstein..., Adorjan, Velimirovic and others picked it up over the years...

  perfidious: Bronstein's 31.Bd5 is a pleasing example of the clearance theme.
