Jan-23-12  Everett: Did Bronstein blink here? Korchnoi indicates that <15.Qf3!?> would have created some crazy complications, and suspected that this move was Bronstein's original intention.

Of note, Korchnoi also indicated that Bronstein did not make an obvious error in the game after the inferior 15.Qd3. Korchnoi seemed to have played mercilessly.

  andrewjsacks: Quintessential Korchnoi here. Many of his finest qualities on display.
Jan-03-13  Everett: I typed in the wrong move. Though never confirmed, Korchnoi suspected that Bronstein had intended <15.Rf3!?> to which he considered no less than four replies, each of which creating very interesting positions and tactical opportunities. The four replies were ..Bb7, ..e5, ..d5 and, what he thought was best, ..Nc6

Another gift, this time in analysis and practice vs a computer, via Bronstein's opening ideas.
