Zurich International Chess Tournament 1953 Taimanov vs Gligoric
Here is a game from the famous book Zurich International Chess Tournament 1953 by David Brostein, between Taimov and Gligoric, game number 119 for the book Zurich International Chess Tournement 1953
David Bronstein participated in the tournament with the strongest in the world at that time as a Candidates match to determine the challenger for then world champion Mikhail Botvinnik. The complete list of participants in addition to Bronstein include: Smyslov, Keres, Reshevsky, Petrosian, Geller, Najdorf, Kotov, Taimanov, Averbakh, Boleslavsky, Szabo, Gligoric, Euwe, and Ståhlberg. A treasury of games, as Bronstein (and two of his fellow players who also compiled books) well knew, which are as interesting to read about as to play through.
Some of the notes are extracted from the book Zurich International Chess Tournament 1953 for this game.
