Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-05  Resignation Trap: Here's what Botvinnik had to say about this game in his notebook on Bronstein: "Sicilian - Rauzer Bg5 and Qd2, and suddenly the terribly timid Be2, f3 (f4!) - 'Br' played the opening very weakly. Then scheming began and an equal endgame with some advantage to White; if Black had played the correct 32...Kh7, rather than ...Kg7, he would have stood better. On the resumption, Barcza defended accurately and drew. Apparently 'Br' did not know the Rauzer Variation and he became rattled in the opening - thus, in unfamiliar variations he becomes flustered."

  Everett: <"thus, in unfamiliar variations he becomes flustered."> Clearly the reverse was quite true... As time went on, Bronstein was ever the one to play something "unfamiliar."
