|Jul-20-04|| ||Gypsy: Another strategic victory by Bohatirchuk over Botvinnik. |
|Jul-23-04|| ||Honza Cervenka: There is another exemplar of this game in the database (see F Bogatyrchuk vs Botvinnik, 1933 ) with a little bit different order of moves in the opening. Does anybody know which one is correct? |
|Jul-23-04|| ||Gypsy: I also like the rook-endgame technique of Bohatirchuk. In particular, the maneuvers from 34.Rd7 to 42.Rb5 deserve attention. |
|Jul-23-04|| ||Calli: <Honza> A hard one to determine. There may not be a tournament book. For what its worth, I think 2...Nc6 is correct because Botvinnik tended to play the opening that way. See vs Alekhine at Nottingham for instance and later against Smyslov. |
|Jul-23-04|| ||Calli: Also, in the same tournament
Rauzer vs Botvinnik, 1933
|Jan-22-16|| ||Marmot PFL: Bohatirchuk has mentioned in his autobiographic book (printed in Russian in San Francisco in 1978) that just after this game a head of Soviet chess organisation, well-known Minister of Justice Krylenko, approached him and said, "You will never beat Botvinnik again!" Indeed Bohatirchuk never had another chance to play Botvinnik. In particular he was not invited to the Moscow International the following year.
|Jan-22-16|| ||keypusher: <Marmot PFL> In fact he did play in the Moscow 1935 tournament and beat Botvinnik again. Presumably Bogatyrchuk is referring to the 1936 Moscow tournament.|
|Jan-22-16|| ||keypusher: A Botvinnik apologist's work is never done, but Moscow 1936 (ten players, double round robin) was considerably more selective than Moscow 1935 (20 players, single round robin). No one who finished with a minus score at the 1935 tournament was invited back for the 1936 tournament. Despite a nice win over Botvinnik, Bogatyrchuk finished minus-3 overall at Moscow 1935. |
Nor was Bogatyrchuk the only Soviet master to beat Botvinnik in 1935; Kan did it too. Despite this act of lese-majeste, he was included in the Moscow 1936 field.
