Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-22-05  Resignation Trap: Botvinnik: "Sicilian. Played bt 'Br' by analogy with Botvinnik - Zubarev (1933). Gained a big advantage but, obviously, time trouble and played for tricks. Draw. He endeavours to occupy solid positions with his pieces. He carefully guards the positions of these pieces."

I can't find the score of the Botvinnik - Zubarev game mentioned.
