  offramp: Played on 7th & 8th March. Botvinnik got a shock with 11.Bc5! He had totally missed it. 9...Ng4 is not a good move.
May-05-16  zydeco: 11.Bc5 was played in the Soviet championship in 1947, so Botvinnik probably knew the move.

Black ends up in an ugly but defensible position (he has to work around his light-squared bishop).
