Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-04-08  Knight13: Botvinnik tries 7. Bb3 instead of a4. Didn't work as well as a4.
Dec-18-13  offramp: 21.Ne2. Botvinnik looking around the Hall of Columns. 15 years earlier in that same room he had been given the wreath of Champion.
Jan-29-14  RookFile: Yeah, I guess 7. Bb3 doesn't work. Whenever I play the QGA against a computer, it finds some way to play d5 and pretty soon it's lights out. Botvinnik didn't come close to getting this key move in here.
