  Honza Cervenka: Why not 44...Nxd5?
Jan-03-13  rilkefan: Stockfish says 44...Nxd5 was better than the game move, but slightly less good than ...Bxd5. 44...Nxd5 runs into some minor complications after 45.Rf8 thinking about Qg3; maybe Bronstein miscalculated them. It's not as if ...Qg6 is forcing - 45.Qh4, a move that caught my eye, is about as good as the game line.

Well, of course this in Bronstein's book, he doesn't consider 44...Nxd5 or ...Bxd5. He looks at a similar line after 43...Qg3 44.Qf2 Qxf2+ 45.Kxf2 Nxd5 and concludes that the pawn-up endgame is still drawn.

FWIW, after I follow its main line 44... Bxd5 45. Bxd5 Rxd5 46. Rxd5 Nxd5 47. Qa2 Qf7 48. Nxd5 Qxd5 49. Qxd5 Rxd5 50. Ra7+ Kg8 51. Rb7 Rd6 sf seems to have a bit of trouble deciding whether black is -0.2 or -0.7. Here 52. Kh2 Kf8 53. Kh3 c4 54. g4 c3 is the main line - too bad the game didn't go this exciting route.

Aug-13-17  cwcarlson: 21.♗g4 fg 22.♗e5 ⩲; 21.♕c1 ♖ad8 =; 21.♕c1 ♗g7? 22.h3?=; 22.♘d2 ±.
