  FSR: I wonder why Botvinnik chose this particular moment to resign? Maybe the game was adjourned, and adjournment analysis showed a clear win for White.
Dec-24-11  Retireborn: <FSR> My databases indicate that Botvinnik actually resigned at move 80, but the moves after 42 are unknown.

  FSR: <Retireborn> Thanks - that makes more sense.
Dec-24-11  gezafan: Vilner seems to have played to avoid Botvinnik's opening preparation, with success in this case.
