Jul-25-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik in his personal notebook on Bronstein: "Like my game with Alekhine 1938, led to a Queen's Gambit Accepted, with an energetic combination cleared the center (!), maintained a good position, won with the first trick! On the 33rd move. Very accurate. But the opponent played the opening feebly."

Oct-23-12  chrisfalter: The greedy 19...Bxb4 would be crushed by 20. Qd3 g6 (or f5) 21. Qd4, and the fork wins.
Oct-23-12  chrisfalter: I need to extend the line:
19...Bxb4 20. Qd3 g6 21. Qd4 f6 22. Bb3+ Kh8 23. Qxb4
