  plang: Bronstein criticizes 13 Ne1 as an overly ambitious attempt to try and exploit the black N on e4. Then he praises 17..Qg6 as being a clever move because black gets a winning attack after 19 Kh1..Rf2. But then he refutes 17..Qg6 with 19 Be3 winning two pieces for the rook. His annotations aren't clear on where black went wrong. Maybe 13 Ne1 was better than he gave himself credit for. Bronstein's play with the two Ns limiting the activity of blacks rooks is quite impressive. 42 Ne8 is quite pretty. If 42..Qb6 (playing for perpetual check) then 43 Qh7+!..Kh7 43 Rg7+..Kh8 44 Ng6#.
Aug-14-07  wolfmaster: Bronstein was very imaginative.
