Oct-18-08  Sem: A real grandmaster, Bronstein.
Jul-18-09  jips64: A funny game, position after move 15 is quite unusual.
Jan-20-10  Everett: After move 10, look at black's development!

  Tabanus: Bronstein ended 5th in the Open NOR Ch 1990 (with +4 =5), see crosstable in Norsk Sjakkblad, Nr. 3/90, p. 7.

His remaining 8 games there are not in Norbase, and may be lost.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Not sure I would ever want to grant a former world Number 2 the odds of both Rooks and a Knight. Both Rooks, perhaps, but not the Rooks *plus* a Knight.
