  Honza Cervenka: 23.f6, 24.Bxe5 and 26.Qe7+ are quite typical for Botvinnik - logical and deadly effective.

23...gxf6 24.Be4 Qc8 25.Qf3 f5 (25...Ke7? 26.Bh4 ) 26.Bxf5 Qd8 27.Re1 gives white big advantage.

24...Bxe5 doesn't help for 25.d6!

41.d7 with forcing of simply won Pawn ending is an elegant finish.
