Jul-21-05  Resignation Trap: In Botvinnik's red notebook: "Scotch Game. Schemed, exploited Stoltz's errors. A blunder by White in a difficult position decided matters."
Oct-15-05  suenteus po 147: <Resignation Trap> Interesting note by Botvinnik. I wonder what the difficult position was to which he referred and what Stotlz could have played as an improvement?
Aug-02-11  ozmikey: The blunder was 21. f4?? after which 21...Qe2 wins a piece in every variation. White's position was certainly a bit difficult before that (light squares on the king-side), but certainly not much worse.

Incidentally, this is the game which kick-started Bronstein's run to victory in this tournament after a fairly unassuming start.

  plang: 7 Nc2 is pretty tame and has been replaced by 7 Bc4 which Kasparov popularized. 9..0-0 was new; 9..Be6 had been played previously.
