Apr-28-06  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 .

  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.
