I picked up for 20p a copy of the tournament book (in Russian)
of the 1955 Goteborg International and did my piece on on it
adding the Fischer bit an excuse for doing it. (again!).
(one of my last Chandler Corners - I had a break of about six months then
came here - having a wee holiday so next Blog will be at the end of the month.)
Vandervelde has the spelling correct though everyone who has covered
this event in the English speaking press usually spells it 'Gothenburg.'
The one great shame about the 'Gothenburg Triangle' is it over shadows
some other great games played in this tournament and it knocks into nowhere
one of Bronstein's greatest triumphs. He won it 1½ points clear of 2nd (Keres)
with the lovely score of P.20 W.10 D.10. L.0.
Full table + all the games here:
The top nine finishers joined Smyslov (the 1954 finalist) in Amersdam
to see who would play Botvinnik in 1957. (Smyslov won that one ....and he won the WC.)
I'll add here the Bronstein game I used on The Corner.
24 Moves. No piece gets taken, Black's Queen is trapped.
