This evening I won a fairly good game at my local club, utilising the Schliemann Defence to the Ruy Lopez. To be fair, my opponent played fairly solidly throughout, but played one poor move that saw his position fall to pieces.
Rather than show you that game, I instead have chosen an interesting game between Rashid Nehzmetdinov and David Bronstein. Even though Nehzmetdinov also chose the solid 4.d3 variation, he eventually whipped up a kingside attack by sacrificing his h pawn, and after Bronstein missed the strength of Bxh6 it was all over.
