Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-08-08  Everett: McDonald, in a recent book, mentions 16...Bf6 as being a strong alternative for his opponent, and 23.gxh6 as nearly winning for white.

Since gxh6 seems so strong on move 23, can black consider keeping the g-file closed with 22...h5? Can black survive after 23.g6 Nxg6 24.Qxh5 Kg7?

Aug-25-11  Everett: 42..Qd5! If <43.Rxg4 f1=Q 44.Bxf1 Qxd1+ 45.Ka2 Qxg4>
Sep-14-14  tranquilsimplicity: I would have loved to know what Bronstein's reply to McDonald's suppositions would have been. As in my view, few players were as creative as Bronstein, whom I believe would have had little need for computer analysis, because his ideas were simply fantastic and very strong.#
