Jun-28-11  Everett: 29.cxd5#

Bronstein build up is a pleasure to play through.
25.Nhxf7, fatally weakening e6, sounds the final breakthrough.

Dec-28-11  Everett: No <Everett>, <29.cxd5+ Kxe5 30.Rae1+ Re2 31.Rxe2+ Kd6 32.Re6#>

  Robed.Bishop: Yes, <Everett>, you are correct.
Dec-28-11  Everett:    <Robed.Bishop: Yes, <Everett>, you are correct.>

If only it took me less than 6 months to correct myself ;-)

Dec-28-11  Shams: Per his bio, IM Kelly was Irish Champion the year this game was played.

<Bronstein build up> A move I probably wouldn't even look at, because I don't understand it, is <17.Ng4>:

Has Bronstein already seen that Black will be forced to play ...g7-g6, as he does on his 22nd move? Poor Kelly was forced to serve up his dark squares to that damn knight.

  Robed.Bishop: <Everett> You still beat the rest of us!
Dec-28-11  Everett: <Shams> 17.Ng4, in my eyes, overprotects e5, allowing the Q more flexibility, and enabling Nd2-Ne4 in some lines. It in addition targets both f6 and h6, thus compelling Black to keep tabs on those squares with pieces, if possible.

Also, it seems the N cannot be chased. If Black rises to the bait with <17..h5 then 18.Nh6+> with complications which seem to favor White.
