Oct-21-16  edubueno: Parece que había un acuerdo de tablas entre BS y DB
Sep-24-18  edubueno: =0.00 (19 ply) 31...Qh5 32.Bxb6 Ng4 33.Re2 Ne5 34.Ree3
Sep-24-18  edubueno: Al momento de la partida, BS lleva 4 a 0 de DB, con 8 tablas. Pero en la partida 1 BS siempre entra a media máquina.
Sep-24-18  Boomie: Perhaps Spassky should have pressed harder for a win, but it's the first round, so a quick draw is reasonable. The game is quite complex and maybe Spassky played until it was clear that Bronstein understood the position.
Jun-18-20  ewan14: This tournament was after the real USSR zonal
and Spassky , for one , had to play a semi USSR final before that Tiring
Jun-18-20  ewan14: Also Boris had to play his nemesis , atm , Stein two more times
Jun-18-20  ewan14: I think David Bronstein played this really well. He did not accept Boris' offers to open the game up too much
