Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-08-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik also had some good things to say about this game by his upcoming opponent in 1951: "King's Indian - after 8...Re8 'Br' played 9. h3 exd4 10. Nxd4 Nc5 11. Re1 c6 12. Bf4. Vajda quickly went wrong and, exploiting the rather unfortunate placing of the black pieces, 'Br' quickly and skilfully (of course f4-f5, Re1-f1, g3-g4) concentrated his pieces and struck a decisive blow. A good game by 'Br' and a typical one."
Feb-28-12  artsys: that doesn't sound like something good to say. I wish Botvinnik had kept the comments to himself,or rather, if you'd never added the put-down type comments in the first place. Bronstein was one of the m ost imaginative players to come out of soviet union.
