Apr-03-06  outplayer: What an amazing game! I think the final threat is 44...g3 and h pawn crowns. Could anyone say why white resigned?
Apr-03-06  twinlark: I think you're right about the threat of 44...g3.
eg: 44.Bd6 Rxd6 45.Nxd6..Re6 and...g3
Apr-18-13  Beancounter: Botvinnik did have an amazing ability to set the opponent problems on each turn. He was far from the stodgy player he is generally represented as.
Jul-31-13  TheFocus: From the Leningrad Masters Tournament.
