|Apr-05-02|| ||refutor: obviously not botvinnik's strongest game, but i thought yanofsky did well to fight back against botvinnik's queenside advantage and turn it into an advantage of his own |
|Apr-05-02|| ||knight: Botvinniks' decision to allow his pawns to be doubled on the queenside is a controversial one,perhaps it would have been better to retreat his knight on the seventeenth move. |
|Aug-07-04|| ||ruylopez900: Excellent game by Yanofsky. Since the action and tactis were all one the Queenside the kings get little attention, it might seems to outsiders as boring, but imagine, one slip on the queenside and all of your opponent's might comes crashing down on your king! |
|Feb-01-06|| ||perfidious: Botvinnik's decision to snatch the b-pawn seems dubious; I much prefer 34....Bb5 instead. At Black's next move, Pachman recommends as better 35....Rc1+ 36.Qxc1 Nxd3, noting that
despite his nominal disadvantage in material, the Bishops and solid position should give enough play to draw. At all events, Black was forced to give up an exchange in far less favourable circumstances as the game went.|
|Dec-21-06|| ||CoryLetain: A nice win over the great Botvinnik.|
|Aug-11-07|| ||wolfmaster: Quite a good game by Yanofsky.|
|Dec-20-08|| ||morin: Tartakower recommends 34. ... Rb8, but Shredder 11 prefers 34. ... Bb5 as same as Perfidious.|
On that year Botvinnik was the best world player, while Yanofsky was located between 30th to 40th on world ranking. Excellent game from him!!!

|Jul-18-10|| ||PeterB: Yanofsky had been a child prodigy himself when at the age of 14 he played second board for Canada in the 1939 olympics, scoring 14.5 - 1.5! Botvinnik on the other hand, who was acknowledged to be the world's best in 1946, was somewhat nervous, having lost in the previous round to Kotov.|
|Mar-26-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: I believe this game appears in an old Dover collection of games by Reuben Fine. Both players show tremendous fighting spirit in the game, but 34...Nxb4 gave Yanofsky an initiative on a day when he was playing some of the best chess of his life. 49.White to Play would make a decent mid-week puzzle some day.|
|Aug-02-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
Yanofsky vs Botvinnik, 1946.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF YANOFSKY.
Your score: 90 (par = 74)
|Nov-20-14|| ||plang: Botvinnik played the early part of this game exceedingly well and after 25..Nxe4 had a clear positional advantage. Even after 34..Nxb4? 35 Re2 he had several reasonable options (other than 35..Rc1+ mentioned above): 35..Rb8 or even 35..e4 with the idea of ..Bf6 would have been far superior than Botvinnik's 35..Ba5? after which he was lost.|
