|Jan-07-04|| ||marekg248: Ragozin was a trainer of Botvinnik, I don't know whether at the time of this game, but in 1942 for sure. |
|Mar-08-04|| ||perplex: 8 Nb5->Nd6+
15 e5 was a good try but a scene after 19 Qg5+ shows that Black's pawn center is rather a weakness.
|Mar-08-04|| ||meloncio: <marekg248> <...but in 1942 for sure.> And in the spring of 1936 too, says Botvinnik in a book. |
|Jun-11-05|| ||lentil: things get hairy after (8. Nb5) ab+ 9. c3! Bc7 10. Bxa3. W has a big plus i think|
|Jul-23-05|| ||schnarre: A case of the student surpassing the master?|
|May-17-07|| ||Gouki: Kasparov was also a student of Botvinnik I believe...|
hmm..it seems that the new generation does indeed surpass the old :D
|Apr-13-08|| ||whiteshark: <25...exd3??> was a quick losing move and Botvinnik showed with good technique for what reason.|
|Jul-27-10|| ||GrahamClayton: Botvinnik's combination starts with two retreating moves 23.♕e2 & 24.♗c1.|
|Dec-04-10|| ||James Bowman: Bravo Mr Botvinnik this was pleasing.|
|Feb-21-12|| ||backrank: The retreat 24. Bc1 being the strongest attacking move here (aganinst which Black is in fact helpless), leaves a very esthetic impression here and shows the mastery of then 16 year old Botvinnik.|
|Feb-21-12|| ||RookFile: You get the feeling that Ragozin was trying to test Botvinnik in a murky middlegame. He certainly passed the test here.|
|Feb-21-12|| ||brankat: V.Ragozin was only 3 years older than M.Botvinnik, and at the time of the above game they didn't yet have a trainer/sparring partner relation. The game took place at the USSR Championship 1927, where Botvinnik tied for the 6th place and was awarded the Master's title.|
I'm pretty sure the two started working together sometime in the late 1930s, and then on throughout the 1940s and '50s.
|May-10-12|| ||Alphonse1973: <brankat: V.Ragozin was only 3 years older than M.Botvinnik, and at the time of the above game...> At the time of the above game Ragozin was nineteen and Botvinnik sixteen. Botvinnik, three years younger, was a genius: look at the score of his games with Ragozin: "Classical games: Mikhail Botvinnik beat Viacheslav Ragozin 39 to 3, with 25 draws"|
|Apr-27-13|| ||wlg: In his annotations,
one of the last [quick] comments in this game,
Botvinnik wrote after 24. ...Qd6:
|Jul-31-13|| ||TheFocus: From the Leningrad Tournament of Six.|
|May-15-16|| ||CblP: What's wrong with Bxb4? positional disadvantages for black?|
|May-15-16|| ||perfidious: <Alphonse1973....Botvinnik, three years younger, was a genius: look at the score of his games with Ragozin: "Classical games: Mikhail Botvinnik beat Viacheslav Ragozin 39 to 3, with 25 draws">|
Of their 67 games, the majority were played in training matches: Botvinnik never lost a 'serious' game to his long-time sparring partner.
