  wordfunph: Bronstein looking to rip open the e-file and battery his two rooks and so 28.Nef6!

watta move..

Dec-20-11  Shams: <22.g5>! looks nice, forcing Black to plug his only kingside square with a pawn, and freeing g4 for the knight.

<wordfunph> Yes, <28.Nef6> is great. White need only see that Black is almost out of moves in the four-move forcing line that ends with <32.Kxg2>:

I say "only" but of course I had to fiddle with the pieces for a few minutes to convince myself. Probably it was just obvious to Bronstein that White had tons of compensation.

It's critical that Black can't free his Nh7, e.g. 32...Nf6?? 33.Nxf6 Qxf6 34.h7+ Kf8 35.Rf6 Qg7 36.Rg6 and it's all over but the crying.

Jan-13-12  BlackSheep: I'm no expert but I don't think it helps moving the same knight around aimlessly 6 times (from g8-f6-d7-b8-d7-f8-h7 haha) in the first 15 moves and then leaving it on an impotent square until move 39 especially against someone with such pedigree as Bronstein .
