  keypusher: A strange and interesting game, with Botvinnik giving up his fianchettoed bishop and then dominating matters with his knights. Note that 18....Bxb3, giving up his other bishop, creates a nice outpost. As welhelm rather excitedly points out, 35....Qf1+ 36.Bxf1 Re1# is an alternative mate. I assume this was from the Olympiad -- does anyone know?

The funny thing is, I only came across this game because pointed it out as an example of spamming.
