Aug-12-09  obender71: White black squares weakness was perceivable from move 14 on ... The exchange of heavy pieces didnt equalize. The f4 pawn cramped white position in an incredible way.

Right, it's a pearl.

After 54.Nxc6 it seems that Black will have to return the pawn, as 54.-,Kf5 55.Sd4+ is a draw.

So Bronstein sighs and plays 54.-,Ne2+, to an unwinnable endgame after 55.Kf4, with only a few pieces on the board.

Nei takes the pawn and waits for Bronstein's move and a draw offer...

...when SLAM! Mate next move!!

So, White had to try 55.Ke2. Black DID keep the pawn and should still win.

Just when did Bronstein The Sly realize all this?
