Dec-29-05  like a GM: I suppose Botvinnik hadn't seen till the end whaen he played 18♘xf7 so it was a positional sac. And then there is 25♕xe7! which is a tactical sac. Both kinds of sacs at one game!

  HeMateMe: nice positional sac. After 17 moves this could be a game between GMs or any duffers playing blitz on line. Very instructive, this should be a puzzle game for tactics here.
May-29-11  dull2vivid: 17… Bc5 or a like move and black has equality! and gone to support the ideas that white’s tempo loss of 7.Bd3 8.Bxd4 as only good for equality.

After Nxf7 white is tactically won. ...Rc8 was a pity.
