  An Englishman: Good Evening: Bernstein lost three fortunes in his lifetime, the first due to the Russian Revolution of 1917. He waited a long time to gain a sort of revenge in this game. Bronstein finally won against his 72-year-old opponent, but Black had an equal game for most of the day despite his peculiar defense vs. the King's Gambit. During the post mortem, Bernstein told Bronstein he was worse than Tchigorin--51 years earlier, Tchigorin faced the same position and played the superior 5.c3!

  Gypsy: <zdigyigy: 38....f4+ cant be a good move. > Agreed. I think Black had the better side of a pretty much a dead draw at that point.

If my memory serves me, I remember vaguely that I read in one of Kotov books that Ossip Bernstein just did not want to part with the game, overplayed the position, and lost. But, according to Bronstein, Ossip B. was still fairly cheerful afterwards: "I played this defense against Chigoring himsef," he said: "That was in 1903, over fifty years ago. And I can still play chess!!"
