  Honza Cervenka: This is a copy of Sliwa vs Botvinnik, 1952 with 13.Rbd1 instead of 13.Rbe1. Chessbase.com database includes the game with 13.Rbe1. Has anybody another source?
Feb-27-04  Lawrence: Honza, Botvinnik in his 3 volume "Partidas Selectas"--in English, "Selected Games" I presume--gives 13.Rbe1.

  keypusher: An amazing game. After 51.Rff2:

Black's pressure on h2, built up over 20 moves, has seemingly reached a dead end. How does he make progress?

51....Rf5!! 52.Rf1 Rxf1 53.Qxf1 Rf7 54.Qe1 (54.Rf2 Rxf2 55.Qxf1 Qc1 and ...Bg5 also wins) 54....Qf8 55.Re2 Rf1 56.Qd2 Qf3+ 57.Rg2 Rd1 58.Qh6

58....Rxg1+ 59.Kxg1 Qd1+ is good enough, but Botvinnik prefers 58....Qf6, which just underlines White's helplessness: If 59.Re2 Bf8 60.Qh4 and now either ...Qxh4 and ...Rxd3, ...Qf3+ and Rxg1+, or ...g5 all win.
