   May-15-22 Bronstein vs Kotov, 1950 (replies)
cehertan: Wow! Bronstein in his prime, so fearsome and original.
   May-14-22 Kotov vs Lilienthal, 1950
cehertan: It took me a minute to understand the meaning of the moves 23.Bg5 (after Be3 the move before) and the reply 23..Rcc8. 23.Bg5 threatened the pseudo sacrifice 24.Qxc6! and 25.d7 with advantage, hence the rook retreat. As for 26.b4! Nerwel, it was a strong master move that left black ...
   May-13-22 Smyslov vs Bronstein, 1950
cehertan: Perfidious played the winning comment. Stellar technique by Smyslov as usual.
   May-13-22 Bronstein vs Szabo, 1950
cehertan: PS I think my old friend Eric is a little cuckoo, it is commonplace for positions to be categorized as open, closed, or semi-closed, although an Open Game implies the opening 1.e4 e5, as in Bronsteins amazing book 100 Open Games. I would call the Grunfeld a semi-closed opening and ...
   May-13-22 Stahlberg vs Keres, 1950
cehertan: Actually better than 35.a4 bxa4 36.bxa4 Ra2 with some edge for black is 35.a3! Ra2 36.Rg8 with full equality. 35.Rd2?? was a real howler but Stahlberg was declining as a player I think.
   Apr-26-22 E Walther vs O Sarapu, 1949 (replies)
cehertan: How does a master lose this position? 44.f3 is a dead draw. Something in the water at this event?
   Apr-25-22 O Sarapu vs B H Wood, 1949
cehertan: Interesting, but 30..Qe7 wins.
   Apr-22-22 G Kieninger vs Bogoljubov, 1949
cehertan: What convoluted awful technique by Bogo after the time control. 40..a2 game over, white resigns. I bet white could not believe his eyes. Even an average club player would be ashamed to miss it.
   Apr-19-22 J Enevoldsen vs Saemisch, 1949
cehertan: Poor old Samisch! White has to resign soon after 50..♗d4 51.b7 ♗e5.
   Apr-19-22 Rautenberg vs Bogoljubov, 1949
cehertan: Why in heavens name not 25.Qxc6 and white is basically winning? Bogo always impressed me as more of a scrapper than a genius, who had more than his share of luck, along with a few shining moments.
