Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-01-05  Resignation Trap: This was Bronstein's only loss in this event. His final score was +8 =7 -1.

Here is what Botvinnik had to say in his notebook: "Grunfeld a la Boleslavsky. 'Br' obtained a good position (for some reason played ...Qa5-d8, rather than ...Qc7), but an unfamiliar one and played it quite feebly - not at all a la Boleslavsky! Florian went in for a risky variation, giving up two pieces for a rook. 'Br' avoided this and, playing on the opponent's time trouble, himself miscalculated and lost a pawn. There followed a technical ending lasting 70(!) moves, but 'Br' did not demonstrate anything interesting.

A poor game."
