  Honza Cervenka: 26...Rxf2!? 27.Qxd8+ Qxd8 28.Rxf2 looks possible but it is hard to evaluate such an ending of 2 Rooks against Queen.

  whiteshark: The move Bd7 has somewhat disrupted the harmony of the Black pieces. Botvinnik realised this and decided on the breakthrough of the IQP with <13.d5!>

  whiteshark: After <30...Rcc2> Petrosian has compensation for the material in the activity of his pieces.

  zydeco: Botvinnik says he worked out everything to about move 20 in home preparation. 12.....Nfd5 is better than the game continuation.
