  FSR: Chessgames.com should probably just delete all the games from this tournament. All the ones I've seen are truly pitiful.

  perfidious: <FSR> My dear fellow, you underrate the instructional value of this game!

It could probably make Kotov's 'Play Like a 1200 Player', a manuscript discovered in his effects by his widow, who had got tired of hearing about his seminal work Play Like a Grandmaster and once implored him, 'Sasha, write a real instructional book, not some piece of rubbish that only second category and above can understand! You must show how truly poorly some of these players at the Palace of Pioneers can play. They are not 2500 players on emerging from the womb, you know! Even young Anatoly Evgenyevich had to start at the bottom and have Comrade Botvinnik show him how to understand.'
