  wwall: 23...Qxd2 loses. Perhaps best is 23...Bc5 24.Qc1 Qxf4.

Not 24...Kg7?? 25.Qf6 mate.

Oct-31-06  gmgomes: In fact game was pretty even until Qxd2??

Nov-01-06  TrueFiendish: Bronstein had a really good sense of humour and adventure, unlike some of his counterparts at the time.

<Perhaps best is 23...Bc5 24.Qc1 Qxf4.>

White would probably reply 23...Bc5 <24. Qb2>, so if 24...Qxf4? 25. Rf1 Bxf1 26. Rxf1, pinning the queen, or if 24...Be3 25. Qa3 Bc5 26. Qb2 with repetition. It looks dangerous for Black to try to win this.

As long as defenses like this are played, it will never die.

Jun-22-13  qqdos: Bronstein missed a trick here with 14...Bd8? Instead 14...Bh3!? seems to give Black the advantage; e.g. 15.Qd1 Bxg2 16.Kxg2 cxd5. Bronstein's patent 6...Nh6 is sound although there is one more game with the move: Jose Bademian vs Mauro Barboza, Uruguay 1968 (1-0) 69 moves. Black diverged with 10...dxe5? instead of 10...Qe7 allowing White to get the upper hand.
