Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-09  ughaibu: How often does this final move occur? Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975
Dec-21-10  ozmikey: The dreaded Boleslavsky Wall strikes again! Amazing how bullet-proof that d6 pawn is...White can take it on move 20, but after 20...Qb6 his position is suddenly very shaky. Nice game.

  plang: Hard to tell where White goes wrong. 14 Nde2 and 15 Nc1 look passive to me. He doesn't like 18 Nd3 but the alternative he gives 18 f4..Bg4 19 Rd2..Qb6 20 Kh1..Bf5 looks even worse to me (and he seems to agree). He recommends 22 Nb1 instead of 22 Na4 and then 28 Ra1 instead of 28 c5 but Black was already better at those points.

Bronsteins postscript:"The weakness of the entire variation with the fianchetto of the f1 bishop is that, if White does not achieve good play in the centre, his king, three pawns and bishop are in danger of being left out of the game."

May-24-13  Nerwal: <14 Nde2 and 15 Nc1 look passive to me.>Yes, and on top of that the setup with ♗b2 and ♕c2 is already quite passive. Probably the whole line gives white nothing and that's why modern players usually go for other plans (h3/♖e1/♗f4/♖b1).
Jul-16-14  jerseybob: To me,the final straw is 21.b4?, which leads to positional destruction on the q-side. 21.Ne2 might - might - give a playable but inferior game.
