  Honza Cervenka: Instead of 11. Qe5 maybe 11.Bxc6+ bxc6 12.Qc5 Bd7 13.Bg5 deserved attention.

  plang: Keres's 8..Nxe4 looks like a clear improvement over 8..dxe which had been played many times in past games. 10 Bg5 is now considered stronger than Geller's 10 Re1+. As mentioned above 11 Qe5? was a blunder overlooking that Black could play 11..0-0 due to 12 Bxc6..Bd6. Had White regained the pawn starting with 15 Bxf6 Bronstein thought that the resulting endgame would have been dominated by Black's bishops. Black's advantage was clear after 15..Ne4! as after 16 Bxe7..Nxc3 17 Bxd8..Nxe2+ 18 Rxe2..Rxe2 19 Bxe2..Rd8 Black holds onto his extra pawn. 21 Rd3? lost quickly but White's game was hopeless in any event.
