  Benzol: For a friendly game this was a rather brutal encounter.
Mar-09-09  Ladolcevita: Beatiful King's Gambit!
Jun-15-09  alexrawlings: This is the only game in the database where White plays 5 g3 instead of Ke2 in this position. Surely this isn't a sound move or it would be played more often... right?
Nov-01-09  TheBish: Right. Recommended is 5. Ke2, and White has a good game. (Better than the results in this database would indicate.)
Sep-21-12  dehanne: Bronstein played another crazy game in this line in a 1990 simul, but the game doesn't feature in the database.

May-02-16  TheBish: Not sure why Bronstein played 34. Rxf4, as there is a forced mate beginning with 34. Qxc6+, but whatever the reason, it prompted resignation! Maybe he was pointing out that even that move wins? I guess he saw the win of the queen after 34...Qxf4 35. Bd7+ Kf7 36. e6+, and didn't bother to look further.
