Aug-18-05  ThaDoctor: why 8.exd5 ? I don't think that white get that much from it, more likely stick to the main lines in the King indian might be better ? The endgame where easy i think, thru that black had a good pawn extra. Botvinnik made a great game!
Oct-02-05  aw1988: I much prefer d5, yes.
Oct-01-07  eristoff: 33.♖f7 (Δ 34.f3+) wins. 30... ♗xa3 was a blunder, 30... g5 was the only move, stopping 31.g5
Jun-22-09  Raf: 40...Bb4 is a brilliant move, best in the game! Whit's knight is out of business
Oct-09-13  Bob Loblaw: 39. Rg5? White May have been behind the 8 ball but to have any chance of drawing he had to keep as many pieces on the board as possible an avoid the exchange of rooks.
Mar-30-17  MrJafari: The first game of Botvinnik and a bad blunder of White at the last moves...What he thought about his 45th move?!
