The openings and the endgames are not much attended to in Bronstein's comments, but with the comments that he does provide Bronstein has given us a sort of textbook on the middle game. Bronstein considered Among the strongest chess tournaments ever, the games played in Zurich, , were annotated by participant David Bronstein shortly after the tournament ended. Bronstein considered these games to represent "a step forward in the development of chess creativity.
He occasionally cites lines considered by Najdorf as well. The remarks are often refreshingly candid, as, when remarking on a poor move, Bronstein reminds the reader that grandmasters are human too and thus prone to error. Many of these games begin 1.

What's so special about the Zurich 1953 Chess Tournament?
I asked people about the best chess books and many have recommend this book called "Zurich by David". I did a bit of research and found that it was a chess tournament played in Zurich. But there are hundreds of chess tournaments played every year and all around the world, so why is this specific tournament has a whole book written on it and not the others? Also, Bronstein's annotated book of the tourney is reckoned to be one of the best such books ever written. Yeah, the quality of the annotations is one of the things that is supposed to give it classic status, along with strong games. I have the book, and just need to spend time working through it, so can't give my opinion on quality, but it does come highly recommended.
