  Chesnutt: Wow! It is not often that one sees a completely unforced blunder by a GM. This game should be reassuring to all of us patzers.

Botvinnik notes in his "One Hundred Selected Games" that he played only 11 games in 1932, all of them in the USSR championship that Sept. I'll bet this was his easiest.

Jul-01-14  1d410: He had inferior pawn structure, so he knew he was losing anyways.
