Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-05  Resignation Trap: "Pre-arranged quick draw with numerous exchanges" was all that Botvinnik wrote in his red notebook on Bronstein while preparing for the 1951 match.
Apr-27-06  DP12: That is a very harsh verdict for a very interesting opening experiment, although knowing Botvinnik it's probably right on target.

  FSR: Bronstein and Boleslavsky were close friends and I believe brothers-in-law, so it would not exactly be shocking if this were a prearranged draw.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Benzol: They were indeed close friends. Bronstein married Boleslavsky's daughter so they were son-in-law and father-in-law.
Nov-02-11  nescio: <Benzol, FSR> Not exactly. Bronstein married Tatiana Boleslavskaya in the 1980's, after the death of Boleslavsky. Anyway, during the match Tatiana was 5 years old.

  FSR: <Benzol><nescio> Thanks for the corrections. Yes, according to Wikipedia, Bronstein married Boleslavsky's daughter in 1984, seven years after Boleslavsky's death.
