Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-12-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik had this to say about his young opponent's play in the upcoming match in 1951: "Rauzer Sicilian with 6. Bg5. Keres castled short and played 9. Qd3. 'Br' made the cunning move 9...h6, after which the B/g5 retreated to c1 - but this was not a system, just a move. There then followed simply weak play by Black and Keres obtained a good game. 'Br' immediately made for the endgame, which he played very accurately (22...b6 and 23...a5!) - breaking up White's pawns. In an unclear position 'Br' would have had to find an unusual move - but a draw was agreed on the 26th move! Rather weak, but quite professional. In the opening played 11...Nxd4 - for exchanges."
May-31-13  zydeco: I think the next moves are 26....e5 27.Rd5 Be6 28.Rb5 Bxa3 29.Rd1 and black is still a bit tied up.
