Apr-29-04  alabaster: This was a training game played in the hostel of a nearby tournament, according to Furstenberg's excellent book. Many other chess mortals would not have defended (and then won against) the speculative 10. c4.

  nasmichael: Who was training whom in this game? To see white's position dissolve is worth looking at again, for my own benefit. In playing through it I saw much that I could discuss with another player in detail.
Aug-12-07  wolfmaster: Highly tactical game favoring Bronstein.
Aug-12-07  Maynard5: Bronstein's counter-attacking play here is superb. Even after Keres wins the exchange, Bronstein's powerfully posted bishop and advanced pawns in the center mean that the initiative passes over to Balck. 25. ... Qh8, preparing to seize the g-file, while preserving attacking opportunities on the h-file, was an inspired move.
Nov-23-08  Andrijadj: Keres-Bronstein???No way...Shirov-Kasparov,surely...
Oct-03-10  morphynoman2: 20... Nd7 is a mistake. 21. Qxh7 0-0-0 22. Nxc4 23. Qxc4 Qxe7. Correct was 20... Bd6
