  PinkZebra: The way the white pieces combine to win the black queen is beautiful.29)...Rd8 30)Rc8 Ke7 31)Qe5+ Kf8 32)Qe8+!.
Jan-04-03  ughaibu: Why 32. Qe8? Why not Rd8?
Jan-04-03  drukenknight: nice finish, where does Bronstein go wrong? What about 27...Qe6
Jun-29-05  suenteus po 147: <drukenknight> 27...Qe6 is a very good idea, since Bronstein's rook on the g-file blocks the mate.

Notice how, after 6.d4, the position looks like a typical (B16) Bronstein-Larsen variation of the Caro-Kann set-up.

  keypusher: What happens after 28 Qxe6 fe 29 Rc7 (29 d7 Rd8 30 Rc8 Ke7) and, say 29...e3 30 Rxh7 e2 31 Re1 Rxf4 32 Kg1 Rg4 33 Rxe2? Is there a better defense?

  nasmichael: Playing through a game like this one is a valuable way to teach "consequences" in a game's play. <<What Comes Next>> is so difficult to put into words; instead the pictures of progression themselves are the best teachers.
Jun-20-18  Bassifondi: Se non prendi il pedone, promosso a regina: 29...Qxh8 30. dxe8=Q+ Kg7 31. Qe5+ Kg8 32. Rc8#.

Se lo prendi: 29...Qxh8 30. dxe8=Q+ Kxe8 31. Rc8+ Kd7 32. Rxh8.
