  Gypsy: Bronstein plays this in a classical style. Black Q and N end up off sides and the three threats--to Bd7, Rd8, and Pa7--can not all be met.
May-24-04  somethingstrong: Interestingly, even some GMs don't know the castle rule...even though b1 and b8 are attacked by the black queen and white queen respectively, both sides can still legally castle queenside. I believe it was Korchnoi who had this issue in a Candidates match v. Karpov
Jul-25-05  Resignation Trap: This is the "Queen in Wonderland" game, but Botvinnik didn't think too highly of it. In his personal notebook he recorded: "Triangle with 5. e4 and sacrifice of the e4 pawn! Szily played weakly, scheming began and in 24 moves it was all over. Do such games happen only against weak opponents?"

  Gypsy: <Resignation Trap> Thnx for transcrabing the Red Book of Botvinnik! I am curious: Are there any comments that actually praise the play of Br and/or his oponents??
