Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-12  Everett: Very interesting play throughout this early Leningrad Dutch. I was curious if anyone has Sherevsky's book on this ending, and if indeed Bronstein missed an opportunity for a point here. Thanks in advance for the help.
Jul-27-12  Everett: Well, it looks like Bronstein executed an excellent idea, but did not follow through perfectly.

51..d5! frees d6 for the K and turns off White's LSB, specifically the eyeing of g2. If Bronstein had continued with either <..e5! or ..Kxd5 on move 54>, he would have managed to keep the White rooks buried behind barricades and relegated White's bishop to worthless squares on the Q-side. Because of these lines, White must play <54.Rd2> with a difficult defense, as Bronstein could try both <54..exd5 or 54..e5!> the latter keeping with the previous idea noted above.

  dernier loup de T: So, if I'm understanding well, 51...d5 is deserving a question mark, Everett?...
Apr-21-16  Olavi: Shereshevsky cites Goldberg in the tournament book, who gives 54...Kxd5 as probably winning, with a possible variation 55.Rd2 e5 56.Re2 Rg7 57.Rd1 Re7 58.Re4 Rb6 59.Rd2 Rg6 60.Bb5 Rg4. So no question mark for 51...d5 yet.
