Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-07  Regicidal: Throwing the pawn doors open to the white king by move 7 seems like a bad gambit payoff. Bisguier seems to have recovered, however, and the resignation at move 31 comes as a surprise.
Sep-15-07  RandomVisitor: 4...h6 might be best here.
Dec-23-08  Fourpointo: The only game in the database with the American Attack. This should be the game of the day on July 4th or something.
Apr-14-12  Tired Tim: <<Regicidal> ...the resignation at move 31 comes as a surprise.>

If it weren't for the fact he was a piece down

Apr-25-12  TheTamale: If someone played 3) Nd2 against me, I'd push on with 3) ...e3, just for the hell of it. It might not be the best move, but that's how I roll. Plus it would send a valuable message: "This is what I think of your stupid Nd2."
May-05-12  King Death: <Regicidal: Throwing the pawn doors open to the white king by move 7 seems like a bad gambit payoff...>

We could even say that Bisguier invited regicide. I never heard this called the American Attack but it's one product that should stay in America.

Jul-26-14  Ke2: <Regicidal> The GMs commenting in the side room thought he had a won game! Imagine their surprise
Nov-20-14  PolishPentium: Can anyone explain why W did not play 14 c x d4? Looks safe enough for W to me, and the B is a tastier prize than the pawn...
Nov-20-14  PolishPentium: Is it that the advanced d-pawn for Black seems to be a menace? Actually it isn't... A nifty trap for White after 14... d3 (the supposed threat) is 15 Qf2 Re8 16 Nd2 Nf6 17 0-0 [Black gets greedy-] Nxe4 18 Nxe4 Rxe4 19 Qf8mate! Aside from the d-pawn advance though W looks reasonably secure after 14 cxd4. To me, that is. Presumably Bisguier's perception is more advanced and he saw something else... but what is it? Thanks to anyone willing to elucidate.
Nov-17-15  zydeco: <Polish Pentium> After 14.cxb4 d3 15.Qf2 white leaves a piece en prise -- 15...Qxe4+.

The opening looks like a massacre but white gets a completely playable middlegame. 22.Ne4 seems like the decisive mistake, walking into a nasty pin. Probably white should play 22.Rad1 (22.Rhf1) is an alternative and keep moving the king to the queenside.

Nov-19-15  zydeco: Bronstein says that he and Bisguier were friendly - a surprising feat in the tense Cold War atmosphere in the mid-50s.

Bisguier was "very proud" of his novelty 3.Nd2. "It's a present for you, David," he told Bronstein.

Bronstein seems impressed with white's opening - and says that white's dodgy king position is fully compensated for by black's underdevelopment. Bronstein claims that he had to calculate all the way to 30....Nf2 before playing 24....Bh3!

Jul-13-18  jerseybob: 7..Be7 has been recommended(by the British master Bellin) instead of Bronstein's 7..Qxg5. Not an easy move to find OTB though.
