  kamalakanta: I do not understand why Bronstein lost this game. Time pressure, perhaps? Maybe he lost on time...

  Pawn and Two: <ughaibu & kamalakanta> The tournament book for the 19th Soviet Championship shows Bronstein winning this game. The game score is the same, with Bronstein winning after 45.Rda2.

Crosstables in "The Soviet Championships", by Cafferty & Taimanov, and in "Soviet Chess 1917-1991" by Soltis, also show that Bronstein won this game. My Fritz database also shows that Bronstein won this game.

Black is clearly winning in the final position. White will soon lose his a-pawn, and Black's passed b-pawn will cost White more material.

I am submitting a correction request, but it may not do much good.

May-14-11  Everett: See how Bronstein turns off white's LSB. After 21..Bc5 black has all the play with his knights. In the end, the knight on d4 sure is sitting pretty.
Oct-14-14  tranquilsimplicity: Black has a clearly won position; the Knight on d4 is sitting very prettily, the imminent fall of white's a-pawn, white's bad bishop and the passed Black b-pawn.#
Oct-14-14  tranquilsimplicity: <Pawn and Two> Your correction submission may have worked.#
