  Mateo: Interesting to see how Botvinnik got an attack with opposite colour Bishops. 31... Qb6 was good but he could have played the even stronger 31... Qa7.

31... Qa7 (to go to a1) 32. Kb1 (only move) Ra8 (the same, go to a1) 33. Qa3 Qb6!! (that is the point) 34. Qa8 Qb4 (xb2, e1) 35. Qa3 Qe1 36. Ka2 Qf2 .

Dec-07-13  parisattack: 33. ...Qb6 isn't mentioned in Botvinnik's notes (Botvinnik's Best Games 1947-1970).He agrees 31, ...Qa7! is 'simpler' and considers both 32. ...Qd4 and 32. ...Ra8 and in that line after 33. Qa3, Qf2 considering 33... Qd4 now not so good because of 34. Rd1, Qe5; 35. f4.

  wwall: After 31...Qa7, 32.Kb1 isn't the only move. White could also play 32.Re2, but Black wins after 32...Qa1+ 33.Bb1 Rd1+ 34.Kxd1 Qxb1+ 35.Kd2 Qxb2+ 36.Kd1 (36.Ke3 Qd4 mate; 36.Ke1 Qc1 mate) 36...Qb1+ 37.Kd2 c3+ and Black will finally win.
