Mar-30-08  acirce: 27.Bh7 is a slight echo of Karpov's own famous 24.Ba7 in Karpov vs Unzicker, 1974

both bishops positions are annoying !

Jun-28-09  Knight13: But 27. Bh7 doesn't really do anything. I don't think it's annoying in this game.

Whaddaya mean? It avoids exchanges on the open file so White can double rooks. The idea is Identical.

I think Kasparov mentioned he misplayed a winning position here. Does anyone know which one?

  offramp: Botvinnik claims to have invented this opening.

He first had the general concept in Botvinnik vs Alatortsev, 1934.

He then played it in Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1952.

He was trying to pull some games back when he next played it: Botvinnik vs Petrosian, 1963. Game 12. He very nearly lost.

Botvinnik tried a slightly beefier version in game 14: Botvinnik vs Petrosian, 1963.

Botvinnik also played the game in Botvinnik vs Spassky, 1970.

It was also used by Korchnoi to flatten his great opponent in Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981.

In his book on the 1985 match, he suggested 40.Ke3 was the winner. My SF10, running for over three hours, basically sees no difference between the move in the game (+0.74, 53 ply) and 40.Ke3 (+0.75, 54 ply).
