Aug-23-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik in his red notebook on Bronstein wrote: "Spanish with 3...f5. What diversity! Does this not indicate that he aims merely to confuse his opponents, and that he has no <prepared systems>? Rather like Reshevsky or Capa?

Kholmov was probably 'not in the mood' and he immediately blundered a pawn. It is interesting that 'Br' could have kept the pawn, but he preferred to give it back temporarily for the sake of superior development. The endgame could perhaps have been played more accurately by 'Br' - too many errors, which <did not throw away the win>. However!
