  keypusher: From Botvinnik's notes to the last game of the Tal rematch, Botvinnik vs Tal, 1961, after 13.Ng3:

<If 13....f4 14.Nxf5 fxe3 15.Nxf6+ Qxf6, then White emphasizes his positional advantage with 16.Qc2, avoiding the double-edged play after 16.Qxe3 e4! 17.fxe4. The manuever 16.Qc2 (instead of 16.Qxe3) was one I later carried out in the game Botvinnik-Medina (Tel Aviv 1964). The exchange of knights on g3 leads to the opening of the h-file, and that says everything.>
