Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-03  WhoKeres: This game is is Bronstein's book 200 Open Games. I think the way Bronstein uses his knights to restrain white's kingside is remarkable. Plus, he got away with a risky, aggresive opening against a very aggressive player in his own right, Laszlo Szabo. This is a game I like very much.

  InspiredByMorphy: Bronstein makes Alekhine proud ( the alekhine mem. )
Nov-03-05  CowardlyKnight: Bronstein leaves Alekhine in the dust when it comes to crazy attacking play.
Oct-27-06  Resignation Trap: Bronstein set up a clever trap on move 29, which Szabo avoided: 29.Nd7? Kxd7 30.Qxc5 Nd5!! which threatens the Queen as well as 31...Qf3+.
Feb-11-10  Everett: <RT> That's a great find. How many games go by without noticing such opportunities?
Jan-25-15  cunctatorg: The situation at/on/in/over the board was extremely complicated; it's easy to speak about lost opportunities at the second decade of the 21st century but the situation is quite different over the board!... A gem in the true Bronstein's spirit!!
