Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-11-07  wolfmaster: Botvinnik was able to nullify the possible disadvantage of the isolated pawn and draws an extremely strong player here.
Sep-23-12  bystander: 27) ♖g3 does not look good to me, because of 27) ♖g3 ♖c3x 28) ♘f7x ♕d4x. Why not 27) cb4x ♗b4x 28) ♖d1?
Sep-23-12  bystander: 29) ♘e5. What about 29) ♖g5 attacking the black queen and still protecting g2?
Sep-23-12  bystander: I do not understand 32) .. ♘h5? Some alternatives 32)..♗d5, 32)... ♗f8, 32)...♗b8. In all cases black's knight is still on f6 and there is no need to worry about Bd6 after 40) Rd1.
