Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-03  InspiredByMorphy: Bronstein makes good use with his Bishop and Knight Vs rook in the end game.
Dec-17-03  MoonlitKnight: A game with the Falkbeer Counter Gambit that reaches the endgame after 10 moves. What a shame. :)
Sep-12-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik had this to say in his red notebook on Bronstein's games: "King's Gambit. Falkbeer Counter-Gambit with 4. d3 Nf6 5. Qe2. Szabo became completely rattled and finished up in a very difficult endgame - which Bronstein went into with pleasure - with a weak f7 pawn.

'Br' played well and won quickly.

His piece technique is good."

Feb-28-12  artsys: Here is what I can tell for sure, Bronstein was not someone Botvinnik had any affinity for, one can tell that with the disdain in which he places when describing Bronstein, and how the opponent is either rattled or something and deserved to win, and Bronstein, apparently, did not. Brrrr....
Feb-28-12  PeterB: Apparently the two of them couldn't stand each other. In his book "The Sorceror's Apprentice" Bronstein describes a game where he has totally busted the great Mikhail and after reaching move 40 he gets up for a cup of tea, expecting Botvinnik to resign. Instead when he returns to the board he finds Botvinnik missing and the arbitrator cleaning up the board to get ready for another game!
