Jul-09-11  JoergWalter: From Bronstein, 200 OPEN GAMES:
<There are some chess-players in the world, amongst them grandmasters too, who would consider it the greatest praise they could give to their creativeness to say: "Honestly, I don't know a thing. Why should I go reading old chess books? I thought all these moves up myself - and not in the quiet of my home, but to the ticking sound of the chess-clock." If one were to believe that Gufeld thought up the manoeuvre P-KB5 followed by the knight penetrating to K6 himself and that he did not see it first in the famous Lasker-Capablanca (St Petersburg 1914) encounter, then one must confess that he played the whole of our game extremely logically and consistently. Black pointlessly spent time on exchanging the dark-squared bishops, when it was the light-squared bishop that was a danger to him. By the time I had realized my mistake and found the right plan it cost me too dearly to exchange White's bishop on QN3 and my QRP was catastrophically weakened. Perhaps Black's sole chance of saving himself lay in immediately counter-attacking White's pawn on K4 by 34...Q-K3!.">
