  perfidious: In Botvinnik's annotations, he pointed out that his opponent would have done better to play 8....axb5, allowing the exchange of queens, thereby gaining free development for the pawn.

The line Black chose made for a much more lively game, though.

Jun-20-15  zydeco: I don't see anything wrong with the immediate 31.Nxg6. If 31....Bg4 32.Rg5.
