  Honza Cervenka: Excellent exciting fight full of complex tactics. Final combo is quite pretty.

  perfidious: In Botvinnik's annotations, he pointed out that his opponent would have done better to play 8....axb5, allowing the exchange of queens, thereby gaining free development for the pawn.

The line Black chose made for a much more lively game, though.
