Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-28-08  Brown: Bronstein decides to play in the best style of Petrosian in this one.

22..Nxg4 is a nice freeing move, taking advantage of upcoming pawn forks.

Dec-22-10  Everett: Tidy little fortress after Black's 19th.
Mar-27-14  tranquilsimplicity: I believe that White was attempting to go for a draw by employing a clever strategy of preventing Black's ...f5 attacking move. However Bronstein saw another way of forcing ...f5 by the pseudo sacrifice of his Knight at g4.

White's game was in tatters after 23...f5! #
