  FSR: I wonder why Botvinnik chose this particular moment to resign? Maybe the game was adjourned, and adjournment analysis showed a clear win for White.
Dec-24-11  Retireborn: <FSR> My databases indicate that Botvinnik actually resigned at move 80, but the moves after 42 are unknown.

  FSR: <Retireborn> Thanks - that makes more sense.

  gezafan: Vilner seems to have played to avoid Botvinnik's opening preparation, with success in this case.

Sergey Tkachenko corroborates this in his biography of <Vilner> on Chesspro. He provides <Vilner's> final note on the game:

<"With the loss of this pawn, the black game is resolved. Black still 38 (!) Moves tried to save this hopeless end and surrendered only on the 80th move.

The end is technically simple (White puts his king in a safe place, and then pawns are pushed) and is of no interest." (commentary by J. Wilner)>

<Retireborn> Same for me- the "translation" I gave there was Google auto-translate.

<hemy> can read Russian, which is a huge asset in my opinion.
