Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-18-12  optimal play: Very nice finish by Botvinnik. 24...♗b7 sets up the final attack and 26...♘xg2 clears the way. White may as well have resigned immediately after 28...♖c2! Refusing the sac isn't really viable and there's no other way to attempt to save the game. Even if instead of 30.♔f1 Barischev played 30.♖xe3 then 30...♕h1+ 31.♔f2 ♕g2+ 32.♔e1 ♕xc2 wins.

  Honza Cervenka: 24.Qf4 was a mistake allowing black to finish the game by quick attack on g2. 24.Qe2 was correct.
