  Chessical: Botvinnik (see notes in "100 Selected Games" - game 5) recognised that Black was critically weak on the K-side,


click for larger view

Black has significant problems on the K-side and especially at <f7>.

Instead, however, of <20. Rd8+> the unassuming <20. h3> is very strong as it exploits these flaws:

<20...Bd7> 21. Nc5 Bc6 22. Bxe6! (if 22..fxe6 then 23. Qxe6+ wins outright) Qg5 23. Bxf7+ winning

<20... Nd5> 21. Bxd5 exd5 22. Rxf7 and if <22...Kxf7> then 23. Qxd5+ wins.
