Analyzing a Great Miniature: Bronstein vs Geller (+ Video)

FM michechess89

Hi chess people. David Bronstein was a great attack player. In this post we are going to see an instructive game where he beat another great master: Efim Geller.

I was reading about Bronstein for this post and these are some interesting facts about him:

  • In 1951 he played a match for the World Championship against Mikhail Botvinnik. That match finished with a tie, 12-12.
  • David is widely considered as one of the greatest players not to have won the World Championship.
  • He wrote many articles and books, probably the most famous is the book “Zurich International Chess Tournament 1953”.
  • He was Grandmaster in 1950 and his peak rating was 2595, he got it in 1974.


Let’s analyze the game:
