  plang: This is the only time that 9 d5 has been played - Bronstein liked to go his own way. Bronstein intended 55 Nc7..Rxc7 56 bxc..Qxa8 57 Qb8..Qa1+ 58 Kh2 winning but mistakenly thought that Black could set up a perpetual with 58..Qc1. He also missed a second strong move with 57 Qh4 as 57..Qxd5 could have been answered by 58 Qxh7+..Ng7 59 Qg8+. Missing that the game simplified to a draw.
