Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-30-05  Chris00nj: Damn, this is a pretty aggressive variation for black.
Mar-30-05  jumperino: What's the line after Ng4 here?
Mar-30-05  percyblakeney: Good question, white doesn't look worse after 21. Ng4. If they both didn't miss that move Bronstein probably played 20. ... Qg3 instead of Qf4.
Dec-10-07  schnarre: 20...Qg3 does make more sense here.

After 21. Ng4 I had looked at possibly 21...Qxf3+, 22. Qxf3 Bxg4, 23. Qxg4 Rxg4, 24. Kxh2 Rg2+, 25. Kh1 Rc2 but I'm not too sure about it, unless Black can bring his Knight into the fray at some point.

Dec-11-07  chesshirecat2: After 20...Qg3 21 Ng4, 21...Rxg4 is crushing :
Line1 : 21...Rxg4, 22. fxg4, Bxg4 and the check Bf3 is mating or white loses the queen

Line2 : 21...Rxg4, 22.Qxh2 Qxh2 23. Kxh2 Rg2+ 24 Kxh3 Bxf3##

Any flaws?

Dec-12-07  schnarre: Looks good!
