Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-24-14  ughaibu: The Focus: What's Botvinnik's story about this? Apart from it predating Averbakh vs Spassky, 1956 by twenty nine years?
Jul-22-18  AlbertoDominguez: Soltis has an interesting story about this game in his biography of Botvinnik.
Aug-25-21  johnkr: 6...Qa5 is probably not best. Most masters these days play 6...b4 instead. After 6... Qa5?! White can come in with Na3 and Nc4; instead keeping his Q at d8, if White goes e4, Black can capture and then meet Qe2 with Qe7.
