Apr-14-13  Poisonpawns: A wonderful piece of strategy and execution! White is never allowed to execute a break against the center with e3,and d4
Jan-02-15  Poisonpawns: What years are considered by GM`s and pundits to be Botvinnik`s "peak" or "prime" in chess? The reason I ask, is because this game is so wonderful and rich to me. I looked at the date, and this is well before his championship years.
