  patzer2: Black's 49...g4! is an instructive winning deflection move, incorporating the double attack theme to gain a decisive advantage.

  patzer2: A nice winning alternative to 50...Qe4+! is 50...f3! Play might continue 50...f3! 51. Rh2 fxe2! .
Jun-08-05  aw1988: Um...

I owe an apology. Months later, I see I was being far too annoying in begging this to be game of the day. Too trivial. I apologise for bothering anyone.

Aug-20-05  Bobwhoosta: I see nothing to be sorry about, you were just excited. Annoying is continual excited chatter, but this is obviously a game that can fire people up.
Oct-03-08  sushijunkie: What an absolutely GORGEOUS game.
Oct-03-08  clocked: Interesting would have been 23.Bd6 Rc6 24.Re7+ Kg6 25.Ne5+ fxe5 26.dxe5 d4!

Jan-31-09  BISHOP TAL: This is the most exciting french I ever seen. I think bronstein edges keres and korchoi for best non-champion.

  laskereshevsky: All the chess-lover have to grateful to God who gived to this world a player (and a person) like him.

David Ionovich Bronstein...

  laskereshevsky: <ughabiu>
I Just gived here my 50 cent, without any other purpose to express a sentiment who was in my mind.

SO, if share opinions, fellings, jokes and experiences on internet is nonsense for U....

Jan-31-09  ughaibu: You suggested that your god is part of our common world, I find that personally offensive, anti-social and an act of aggression.
Jan-31-09  Karpova: <ughaibu>
A User once wrote <Various people think and behave in various ways, that's life and life is reflected on this site.> Why aren't you tolerant towards <laskereshevsky> who merely expressed his admiration for Bronstein?
Jan-31-09  ughaibu: He didn't merely express that, he made a statement to the effect that his imaginary entity is part of my world.
Jan-31-09  Karpova: <ughaibu>
Generally I disagree with repressive tendencies, particularly in the infancy of the internet we, it's users, have the responsibility for it's future. We can be tolerant and accept each other culturally and individually or we can take a highest common factor approach and outlaw everything that might offend anyone. I find PC triviality of thought offense to humanity. If you seriously believe that the aim should be to avoid the danger of anyone being offended I suggest you delete your last several posts.
Jan-31-09  ughaibu: I also would like to see tolerance over consideration and generally disapprove of PC sensibilities. There is no god in my psychosphere, I understand that there are gods in other people's psychospheres and I accept that, but I do not accept their gods as part of our common reality. If somebody tells me that their god wrote some book or performed some historical feat, they are distorting our common reality. I am not going to accept that, because it is an act of aggression.
Jan-31-09  Karpova: <ughaibu>
Well, others may perceive your posts as acts of aggression.
Jan-31-09  ughaibu: No doubt.

  laskereshevsky: <Karpova: <<ughaibu>> A User once wrote <Various people think and behave in various ways, that's life and life is reflected on this site.> Why aren't you tolerant towards <laskereshevsky> who merely expressed his admiration for Bronstein?> U got my point...Thanks Karpova

<ughaibu:...he made a statement to the effect that his imaginary entity is part of my world.> well, i have no clear evidences to show U that GOD is a real entity....But, in other hands, have U "real" evidences to show me that GOD dont exist at all?!...:)

In any case, if U <ughaibu> are searching for a steril, spiteful polemic, U will not find this with me... But if somebody is absolutly searching for this, i could advice to check on Fischer's page, as I saw in this day, its full of whom kind of persons....

as i wrote <...all of us chess lovers...>, and U answered to my whats mean u are a chess-lover.... i want to consider only the "good" part of your post....

Feb-01-09  ughaibu: Fine, but if you tell me I have to be grateful to god, you'll annoy me. If you dont want me to be annoyed, dont tell me I have to be grateful to god. If you insist on telling me I have to be grateful to god, put up with my reaction.

  laskereshevsky: no, no,...dont worry <ugh>,...

u absolutly dont have to be grateful to something or somebody because i said it... my "we have to.." was just a general statement, im not "to evangelize" here on CG...

same people say "thanks to the destiny"... or "the fate was (good or bad) with me"... etc. etc.

as i am a believer its natural for me to quote God,.... often this happen to me in a natural way, even mechanical.

Of course i dont have any kind of shame to speak or made reference about God, but I am here on CG only for the CHESS....chess, chess and again chess!

A chess lover.

Feb-01-09  ughaibu: Okay.
Apr-20-10  Everett: Thank the powers that one holds dear that that's over.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: <Everett> Whaddaya mean, "over"? Are you intimating that there are powers I have to hold, dear?
Mar-05-11  Everett: This is really a great, great game by Bronstein, perhaps one of his best as black. Things I imagine Bronstein liked about this game: active time control means quicker play and no adjournments, Bronstein couldn't get his favored KID set-up vs the French and had to improvise afterward, 21..Rxh3 is a beautifully intuitive sacrifice of a knight for a couple of pawns that created a lasting initiative, and he culminated the game with efficient endgame tactics. Brilliant!
