Dec-31-04  takopenings: Bronstein wrote this is the perfect model for those studying the Ruy Lopez attack! The play of whites pieces was of the highest order.

  tpstar: Note 22. Rg3! Qxf4?? 23. Nd5 wins a piece (23 ... Qe5 24. Qxe5 dxe5 25. Nxe7+) because the Nf6 is pinned against the mate threat on g7. But instead 22 ... Bd8 and then White defended the Pf4 with 23. Qe3. Interesting comment by Bronstein since White never established the classic Ruy Knight on f5.
Sep-12-05  Resignation Trap: Perhaps Boleslavsky was too proud of his super knight at d5, for otherwise he may have swapped it to win a few pawns with 28. Nxb6 axb6 29. Qxd6, threatening both 30. Qd7! and 30. Qxb6.
Sep-27-13  zydeco: Bronstein especially likes 8.Ba4-c2, solidifying white's center; and Boleslavsky's decision to play for a win the endgame, an exchange down, with 32.Qd5.
