  perfidious: A most interesting game with all its twists and turns; Black generated plenty of activity in typical fashion for this Blumenfeld counter-gambit, but his opponent parried all the threats and whipped up an attack of his own.

R.I.P. Les- it was a pleasure to meet you.

May-06-05  AgentRgent: Black seems to have been done in by his greed. The pawn grabbing 25...Qxb5 turns the initiative over to white, 25...Nc4 threatens to penetrate into White's camp, and keeps up the pressure.
May-06-05  weirdoid: Who is this Leslie Braun guy? I think back then, a cat. 13 tourney (avg. rating in the 2550-2575 range) must have been quite prestigious, a supertourney or almost-super (a rating of 2600 would probably have been enough, or almost enough, for a top-10 spot), so this Braun guy couldn't have been "just an average IM" just to play there. Why don't we know any more of him? Or, did he exist chess (or die) a bit too early?

  perfidious: IMO, this game is somehow attributed to the 'Clarin' events in Buenos Aires which were held annually at about this time- I've noticed this sort of thing happens quite often on this site.

Les was a New York master about 2350 USCF at his peak; I have a feeling he played this game in a New York event. He was usually one of the most active players in the country, playing hundreds of games per year. He died in the 1990s, though I don't recall the date; the last time I saw him was at the wedding of a mutual friend who took lessons from him for some years.

May-07-05  sneaky pete: <weirdoid> <perfidious> In this case, probably not the event/site but the player is wrong. Walter Browne played in the 3rd Clarin tournament, Buenos Aires 1980, and beat Quinteros (his only win in the tournament). This must be the game.
May-30-08  depraved: On another site, this game is, correctly, given as Browne-Quinteros, Buenos Aires (Clarin) 1980.
