  beenthere240: Botvinnik looked totally unprepared for the opening, and he was supposed to be a master of the French.
Sep-20-06  Tomlinsky: This was one of Botvinnik's earliest games with the French.
Dec-07-07  Sularus: This is Botvinnik's first loss in this database.

  maxi: Bohatirchuck seems to have played four times with Botvinnik, winning three times and drawing once! These damned Kiev players...!

  maxi: Unfortunately, collaborating with the Nazis had made him famous in the USSR after the war and he had to disappear.

Tomlinsky,
This was Botvinnik's first appearance in the USSR Championship, at the age of 16.
