|May-19-17|| ||offramp: User: Chessical and User: Hesam7 have made a very erudite and entertaining intro to this tremendous match. I am not aware of who did what, so I thank them both equally.|
|Jun-24-19|| ||saffuna: Bronstein says his friend Boleslavsky allowed Bronstein to catch him at the end of the 1950 Candidates tournament. He thought the two could then play a World Championship tournament with Botvinnik.|
Maybe that was a realistic hope at the time, but now it sounds ludicrous that Botvinnik or the Russian chess authorities would agree to that.
So Bronstein and Boleslavsky had to play a match to determine the challenger.
|Jun-24-19|| ||Gypsy: <saffuna> At that time, Botvinnik's own proposal for WC "Match-tournaments", put forth via Ragodzin at the head of Soviet FIDE delegation, envisioned 3-person affairs involving the standing champ, the most recent ex-champ, and the new challenger. Thus, three-person affairs tentatively in the works, and Alekhine still dead, it was conceivable that tho two challengers could face Botvinnik in a match-tournament.|
Botvinnik nixed it.
|Jun-24-19|| ||saffuna: Thanks for that, I didn't know.
Still seems overly optimistic for (allegedly) allowing Bronstein to catch him in the Candidates tournament with the hope of the three-man WC.
