DAVID BRONSTEIN
(born Feb-19-1924, died Dec-05-2006) Ukraine

[what is this?]
David Ionovich Bronstein, born February 19, 1924 in Belaya Tserkov was one of the strongest and most imaginative players to emerge from the talent-rich Soviet Union. Bronstein twice shared the USSR Championship, in 1948 with Alexander Kotov and in 1949 along with Vasily Smyslov.

In 1950 he won the Budapest Tournament to earn a match for the World Chess Championship against Mikhail Botvinnik. After twenty-two games Bronstein led the match and needed just one point from the last two games to win the title. Alas, it was not to be as Botvinnik won the twenty-third game and held the draw in the final game to tie the match and retain his crown.

GM Bronstein has made many contributions to theory in openings such as the Ruy Lopez, King's Indian, and Caro-Kann.
