Jun-03-11  Kinghunt: Very powerful game by Botvinik. Rxc6 threats were on the board for much of the game, and Tsvetkov couldn't handle both them and all the central pressure.

  plang: 8..Nb6 was a new move; 8..c5 had been played previously. Black's decision to omit ..c5 is hard to understand - his play is painfully passive. Still, Botvinnik's ability to create threats against such a position is impressive. 25..Qh5 was played to answer 26 e5 with 26..fxe 27 dxe..Bc5.
